Bearing and Sharing

Text: Galatians 6:3-6
Speaker: Jim Newheiser

In the final section of Galatians Paul explains how the gospel of grace transforms us into loving people. Last week in 6:1-2 we were encouraged to show love by gently correcting one another and bearing one another’s burdens as Christ bore our burden.

In this week’s text Paul will remind us not to let pride stop us from serving God by serving one another (6:3-5).

Paul reminds us to bear the financial burdens of those who instruct us (6:6 – an awkward verse for a paid preacher to publicly expound!). Should we support our pastors/teachers? If so, which ones? How much should they be paid? What are some pitfalls into which both teachers and congregations can stumble?
