Gifts of Grace

For (A)by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you (B)not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, (C)each according to (D)the measure of faith that God has assigned. For (E)as in one body we have many members,[a] and the members do not all have the same function, so we, (F)though many, (G)are one body in Christ, and individually (H)members one of another. (I)Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if (J)prophecy, (K)in proportion to our faith; if (L)service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; (M)the one who leads,[b] with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with (N)cheerfulness.

Marks of the True Christian

(O)Let love be genuine. (P)Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 (Q)Love one another with brotherly affection. (R)Outdo one another in showing honor.
