Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function,15
so in Christ we who are many form one body,2 and each member belongs to all the others.
We have different gifts,3 according to the grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying,4 let him use it in proportion to hisa faith.57
If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach;68
if it is encouraging, let him encourage;7 if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously;8 if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.
Love must be sincere.9 Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.1010
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love.11 Honor one another above yourselves.1211
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor,13 serving the Lord.
Be joyful in hope,14 patient in affliction,15 faithful in prayer.1613
Share with God's people who are in need.17 Practice hospitality.1814
Bless those who persecute you;19 bless and do not curse.
