CEBCommon English Bible
1Brothers and sisters, if a person is caught doing something wrong, you who are spiritual should restore someone like this with a spirit of gentleness. Watch out for yourselves so you won’t be tempted too. 2Carry each other’s burdens and so you will fulfill the law of Christ. 3If anyone thinks they are important when they aren’t, they’re fooling themselves. 4Each person should test their own work and be happy with doing a good job and not compare themselves with others. 5Each person will have to carry their own load.
6Those who are taught the word should share all good things with their teacher. 7Make no mistake, God is not mocked. A person will harvest what they plant. 8Those who plant only for their own benefit will harvest devastation from their selfishness, but those who plant for the benefit of the Spirit will harvest eternal life from the Spirit. 9Let’s not get tired of doing good, because in time we’ll have a harvest if we don’t give up. 10So then, let’s work for the good of all whenever we have an opportunity, and especially for those in the household of faith.
