1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. 3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. 4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. 5 For every man shall bear his own burden. 6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. 11 Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand. 12 As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ. 13 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh. 14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. 15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. 16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God. 17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus. 18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

1 angela h = "If another believer has been caught up in a sin, we are to hold them accountable (call them on it) in love. We should never condemn one another but always look to restore our brethren. We can never tell when we will give in to a temptation and be in the same boat. When-not if- we fall from grace how would we want others to treat us? It should be noted that restoration is a process and is not immediate. If you have an old car that needs restoration it's not going to be in pristine condition in a day. It takes work! It takes time!"
2 Enakshi Ganguly = ""
3 Deena E = "This reminds me of when the prophet Nathan lovingly, non-judgmentally confronted David about his affair with Bathsheba and the murder of her husband (2 Samuel 12). He talked to David without blaming him, but in such a way to where David saw his own sin and repented."
4 Deena E = "I couldn't agree with you more Angela. But here's the problem, many Christians do one of two things: shy away from calling others out on their mess to avoid potential conflict or try to correct another in an unloving way  Jesus left us with a great step by step process on how to go about confronting a brother/sister in Matthew 18:15-20. The first step (go and talk to them one on one) is what I've seen many in the church completely avoid, but somehow they have the boldness to talk about the offender behind their back. Lord, help us all!"
5 Sara Di Diego = "The word used here is katartizete, which means "to set in joint", such as a dislocated bone.  Thus with care we have to bring our brother or sister back to themselves again.Work Cited:http://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/matthew-henry-complete/galatians/6.html"
6 angela h = " Christ bore all of our sin burden. Should we not try to help others who love the Lord? See Matthew 22:37-40."
7 angela h = "We should know exactly who we are...according to God, not ourselves or others. We should continually be seeking God's guidance in our lives."
8 Sara Di Diego = "Source:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CTAHhRbg8Q"
9 angela h = "The very best way to prove our work is to ask God. Pray for guidance and read God's word. Listen for Him to speak. He doesn't always speak out of a whirlwind. Sometimes it is a "still small voice". "
10 angela h = "Have you ever heard that "what goes around comes around"? This is exactly what this means. What you plant is what will grow, If you plant hatred and strife that is what you will end up with. If you plant mercy and grace that is what you will end up with. "
11 Cary W = "We all learn the lessons of the flesh quite quickly, for as God has spoken, as we sow to the flesh, we reap corruption, which is quite miserable for a Christian whose heart and mind had been cleansed by the sacred Spirit and Blood of Christ.So then we learn the easiest way in life, is to submit to His kind and merciful council, so as to avoid all corruption of our mind and heart, and continually pray and sow to His Spirit."
12 Cary W = "Even if we failed to walk faithfully in the Spirit yesterday, each day His mercies are new, and every effort we make to seek Him and walk in a manner that pleases the Lord will bring peace to the present and good fruit on the marrow!"
13 angela h = "If we live only to please ourselves and our appetites then we will die in our sins. See Philippians 3:18-19.If we live to please God, we will spend eternity with Him. See Philippians 3:20-21."
14 angela h = "Keep on keeping on in the name of Jesus. You'll get your reward when Jesus comes. See Revelation 22:12."
15 Sarah Mangum = "https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/796425920378765313/photo/1"
16 angela h = "We should treat everyone well, especially fellow believers. If we mistreat others it is sin. See James 4:17."
17 Deena E = "Take every opportunity to serve others, Paul says, and especially other believers. It's easy to get distracted by our own issues, troubles and hangups (the cares of this world). When we are choked up by the cares of this world, it becomes extremely difficult to focus on serving others. To take these opportunities that Paul discusses, we need to be self-aware. "
18 angela h = "Some sects of Christianity hailed from Jewish roots and believed that being a Christian was basically being a Jew plus believing in Jesus work on the cross. Keeping the law and having grace. Which we can plainly see in Ephesians chapter 2 is NOT the case. Paul tells the Galatians that they were making puppets out of them. "
19 angela h = "Paul assures the Galatians that his only motive is spreading the gospel. He has Jesus and does not have a need for the world and its whiles."
20 angela h = "When we accept Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior, we become new creatures. See second Corinthians 5:17. If we are counting on our flesh or lack thereof to save us, we have missed the point. Jesus changes us on the inside.If we follow the spirit, we are performing the will of God. See Galatians 5:16."
21 Deena E = "Circumcision, uncircumcision: tomāto, tomäto. In Christ it makes no difference, for everyone becomes a new being (creature)."
