Today’s Reading | Galatians 6
How important are fellow Christians to you? Are they a high priority in your life? Is your commitment and care for your saved friends greater than your commitment to your unsaved friends? In today’s reading Paul finishes with an interesting phrase that we could easily overlook. It is found in verse 10. His closing admonitions to the Galatians were to be careful of the false teachers, be careful what is sown, and not to become weary in doing good. He further closed his letter encouraging them to take every opportunity available to do good to all people. Then he added the phrase, “especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” In other words, it is more important for us to take advantage of every opportunity to do good to our brothers and sisters in Christ than it is to those who are not saved. Other believers ought to be the priority of our lives. That’s a tough one because we tend to expect more out of them… but maybe that’s why we need the humility Paul talks about early in the chapter.. We ought to care for each other and seek always to meet each other’s needs because of our relationship to each other through Christ. Does your life reflect this priority? In what ways have you demonstrated love to the family of believers recently? How can you get started today?
