Galatians 6: 1-10

Doing Good to All

Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves. Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, for each one should carry their own load. Nevertheless, the one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor.

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

However, it was not too long ago that the weariness owned me. I was doing all the right things and leaning in. My world got very quiet but my grasp on chaos was still tight. I remember the day I let go. It was the day I knew that I knew that I knew, that I needed to re-home the dogs. It was the day… Read more »

10 “Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”
Great summary!! Living every day by the Spirit would result in doing exactly this- we will never be perfect but we will get better with practice and abiding in Him for the power to do so, being changed from the inside out- Praise God Almighty!!
