Reading along with us in Galatians? Here’s today’s reading:

Galatians 6 (ESV)

Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have to bear his own load.

Let the one who is taught the word share all good things with the one who teaches. Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. 10 So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faithContinue Reading

  1. Spirit of gentleness
    Warnings about legalism
    Interesting how this entire letter came full circle and illustrated correcting our brothers (Galatians people) in love about false teachings (circumcision) as well as Paul reviewed his own spirit in the process

  2. 9And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. 10So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
    Written in LARGE letters ❤️

  3. What a powerful chapter! So many principles we see in these first few verses. The accountability we have towards each other to confront sin, the warning about not being prideful about that, the importance of carrying each others burdens, not thinking too highly of yourself, and yet the affirmation we should sense about doing right and not comparing ourselves to others are all here.

    And who is not confronted by the reality that we reap what we sow? That so much of what we have in our lives comes as a result of our choices rather than us being a victim of circumstances. And even more is included in that if we expand this to other’s choices as well, especially Adam’s and how all of creation fell along with humanity. And it is in that context that we are encouraged to not grow weary in doing well. God cannot be mocked….

    And what matters is not our outward appearance or the external works we do in the flesh, but a new creation that comes from God and brings glory to Him and not ourselves.
