Galatians 6:1-5

Support One Another

6:1 Brothers and sisters, 1  if a person 2  is discovered in some sin, 3  you who are spiritual 4  restore such a person in a spirit of gentleness. 5  Pay close attention 6  to yourselves, so that you are not tempted too. 6:2 Carry one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. 6:3 For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 6:4 Let each one examine 7  his own work. Then he can take pride 8  in himself and not compare himself with 9  someone else. 6:5 For each one will carry 10  his own load.
