Scripture: Galatians 6:1-10 (NLT)
1 Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. 2 Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. 3 If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important. 4 Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. 5 For we are each responsible for our own conduct. 6 Those who are taught the word of God should provide for their teachers, sharing all good things with them. 7 Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. 8 Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. 9 So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. 10 Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.
When we see someone overtaken in a fault, those who are spiritually mature should help restore them to the right path, humbly recognizing that we should be tempted and should not fall into sin. We should help one another, bearing a part of each others burdens while realizing we should always do our part.
We must not be comparing ourselves to others! We must pay attention to who we are and what our work for the Lord is and do it diligently so we can be proud of of what we do without comparing to others. Essentially we should not be comparing ourselves to anyone else. We are each responsible for how we conduct ourselves. We will reap the crops of the plants we sow. If we sow blessing then we will reap crops of blessings if we sow weeds then all we will reap is weeds. We should always take the opportunity to do good to others especially fellow Christians. God also wants us to share what we have with those who have been our teachers in the faith, He wants us to provide for our teachers.
Short version; I must stand on my own merits, not comparing myself to others but bearing the responsibility for what I do or do not do. I should help those I see overtaken by the evil one helping them regain their footing on the path of righteousness and not judging them.
I must always be watchful that I am not drawn off course by the temptations around me. I must share what God has blessed me with, with those who are my teachers in the faith and be sure they are taken care of.
I must always be aware of the law of sowing and reaping and plant crops of blessing.
Father I pray you will help me recognize when someone is caught in a fault and give me the wisdom and strength and anointing to restore them to the path of righteousness. I pray you will always help me to do my part, not comparing myself or my calling to others but listen to and obeying you. Help em to always plant crops of blessing and eternal live and not plant fields of weeds as I go through my life. Father help me to bring blessing and honor to you as I go through my life.
