Galatians 6

(6:1) "If a man be overtaken in a fault ... restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted."
Forgive others. Someday you might make a mistake, too.

(6:2) "Bear ye one another's burdens."
Should we bear each other's burdens?

6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
6:2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
6:3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
6:4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
6:5 For every man shall bear his own burden. (6:5) "For every man shall bear his own burden."
Should we bear each other's burdens?
6:6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. (6:8) "He that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption."
Does hell exist?

(6:9) "Let us not be weary in well doing."

(6:10) "Do good unto all men."

(6:11) "See how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand."
Paul was proud of his large handwriting.

(6:12-13) "Many ... desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh."
Seems like a strange thing to glory in. But OK.

6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
6:11 Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.
6:12 As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.
6:13 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.
6:14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
6:16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
6:17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.
6:18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
