Galatians 6

Also, brethren, if a man be surprised into any fault, you, the spiritual men, set such a one right again in the spirit of meekness; taking a view of yourself, lest even you be tempted. Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if any one think himself to be something, being nothing he deceives himself. But let every one try his own work, and then he shall have boasting in himself alone, and not in another. For every one shall bear his own burden. Now let him, who is instructed in the word, communicate of all good things to the instructor. Do not deceive yourselves; God is not mocked: for whatever a man shows, that also he shall reap. Therefore, he who sows to his flesh, shall from the flesh reap corruption: but he who sows to his spirit, shall from the Spirit reap life everlasting. Wherefore, let us not flag in well doing; for in the proper season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 Well, then, while we have opportunity let us do good to all: but especially to them, who are of the household of faith.

11 You see how large a letter, I have written to you with my own hand. 12 As many as wish to appear fair by the flesh, these constrain you to be circumcised, only that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. 13 For not even do the circumcised themselves keep the law; but they wish you to be circumcised, that they may boast in your flesh. 14 But far be it from me to boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world is crucified to me, and I to the world. 15 For in Christ Jesus, neither circumcision avails anything, nor uncircumcision; but a new creature. 16 Now as many as shall walk by this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and on the Israel of God. 17 Henceforth let no one give me trouble, for I bear the scars of the Lord Jesus in my body. 18 The favor of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brethren. Amen.
