Live creatively, friends. If someone falls into sin, forgivingly restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the day’s out. Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ’s law. If you think you are too good for that, you are badly deceived. 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 6:1-5
None of us can complete the process of ‘Living Life Recovery’ on our own. We all need help. We also have a responsibility and should not feel excused from the task of helping others when it is in our power to do so. Recovery works only when we have the common good of all as our aim. When we observe others in need of assistance in the process. Others in need of encouragement and correction we need to humbly and gently reach out to them.
