Brothers and sisters, what if someone is caught in a sin? Then you who are guided by the Spirit should correct that person. Do it in a gentle way. But be careful. You could be tempted too.
Carry each other's heavy loads. If you do, you will give the law of Christ its full meaning.
If you think you are somebody when you are nobody, you are fooling yourselves.
Each of you should put your own actions to the test. Then you can take pride in yourself. You won't be comparing yourself to somebody else.
Each of you should carry your own load.
Those who are taught the word must share all good things with their teacher.
Don't be fooled. You can't outsmart God. A man gathers a crop from what he plants.
Some people plant to please their sinful nature. From that nature they will harvest death. Others plant to please the Holy Spirit. From the Spirit they will harvest eternal life.
Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don't give up.
So when we can do good to everyone, let us do it. Let us make a special point of doing good to those who belong to the family of believers.
