Job 37-39; Galatians 6

Galatians 6:1-2 Brothers, even if a person is caught in some transgression, you who are spiritual should correct that one in a gentle spirit, looking to yourself, so that you also may not be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Paul continues wih the charity owed one’s neighbor, and how that charity is enacted in community.  It is not charity to ignore the sins of others – indeed our culture today even confirms people in their sins – but it is also not charity to confront others in sin in a spirit of condemnation.  There was a time in my life when I thought I was above needing to be part of a Christian community, but the Holy Spirit has taught me otherwise.  What is Heaven if not a community?  Bearing each others burdens is what we are indeed called to do in community in this life.
