Abigail Jacob

"Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above

yourselves.” Romans 12:10
From Abby: "I love this because I think it has to do with mercy and service. I've always understood the greatest mercy as God not giving us what we deserved, a life apart from Him. Ultimately He showed us the greatest act of love through Jesus and this verse reminds me that as Christ showed us mercy, we too ought to show mercy to others which can be done through service."
