   Bear one another’s burdens, 
and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. 

But each one must examine his own work, 
and then he will have reason for boasting
in regard to himself alone, 
and not in regard to another.
For each one will bear his own load.
(Galatians 6:2, 4-5: NASB95)  

Stoop down and reach out 
to those who are oppressed. 
Share their burdens, 
and so complete Christ's law.

Make a careful exploration of who you are 
and the work you have been given, 
and then sink yourself into that. 
Don't be impressed with yourself. 
Don't compare yourself with others. 
Each of you must take responsibility 
for doing the creative best 
you can with your own life. 
(Galatians 6:2,4-5: The Message)

   Let us not lose heart in doing good, 
for in due time we will reap 
if we do not grow weary.
 So then, while we have opportunity, 
let us do good to all people, 
and especially to those 
who are of the household of the faith.
(Galatians 6:9-10, NASB95)  

So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. 
At the right time we will harvest a good crop
 if we don’t give up, or quit. 
Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance,
let us work for the benefit of all, 
starting with the people 
closest to us in the community of faith.
(Galatians 6:9–10, The Message)
