Follow Christ's Example

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil, cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation.

~ Romans 12:9-16 ~

This wonderful passage is really straightforward, but the commands and advice given are HARD to do! Easier said than done, as it is often said. Instead of going verse by verse, I've made a list of all 23 commands given.
Truly love, don't love fakely
Hate evil
Love and adhere to good
Be devoted to one another like brothers
Give preference to each other honorably
Don't lag behind in diligence
Stay on fire in your spirit
Serve the Lord
Rejoice with hope
Persevere through hard times
Be devoted to prayer
Contribute to others' needs
Practice hospitality
Bless those who persecute you
Bless and do not curse
Rejoice with those who rejoice
Weep with those who weep
Don't show partiality
Do not be haughty in mind
Associate with the lowly
Do not be wise in your own estimation
Today, I'm going to pick two to work on.. really hard. :) What about you?
