Job 30-31, Galatians 6
“Restore those who sin, gently, without falling into temptation yourself.” One of the hardest but most rewarding things.
7Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
2Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. -ellie
“But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” May we remember the cost of the cross of Christ which makes us citizens of heaven and not of this world. May we not love the things of the world.
Bearing one another’s burdens is such an important thing, and it made me think how we lightheartedly did this for our pastor Sunday. He was recent injured on a missions trip, and our music team all sported black sock “braces” on our left wrists to joke with him that we are sharing his burdens. We have been praying for him, and our pastor who always enjoys a good laugh, joke, or penal was cheered up by our symbol of sharing his burdens.
Of everything we’ve read so far, Galatians 6 is my favorite book yet!
Care for everyone as they are your brothers and sisters
