Galatians 6

Galatians 6 … The book of Galatians ends in a series of what we might call proverbs because of their spiritual value. Verse 6:1 has to do with church discipline and its objective of restoring the sinner. You see the value of self-examination in verse 4 and the admonition to sow seeds of righteousness in verses 7-8. Each of these has great value in building Christian character. Galatians 6:11 is a personal note that many use to justify the notion that Paul had very poor eyesight; normally he would use a scribe to write his letters, but apparently here he took up the pen himself, and with weak eyesight, wrote his name in large letters. The closing verses proclaim that following the law (circumcision) is past and of no religious consequence; what is of everlasting value is the new creation (v.15) and walking and living a Spirit-led life. If believers practiced that every day of their lives, what a difference it would make to the world!
