The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 Live creatively, friends. If someone falls into sin, forgivingly restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the day's out. 1 Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.
2 Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ's law. 2 Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
3 If you think you are too good for that, you are badly deceived. 3 If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
4 Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don't be impressed with yourself. Don't compare yourself with others. 4 Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else,
5 Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life. 5 for each one should carry his own load.
6 Be very sure now, you who have been trained to a self-sufficient maturity, that you enter into a generous common life with those who have trained you, sharing all the good things that you have and experience. 6 Anyone who receives instruction in the word must share all good things with his instructor.
