1. Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
2. Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
3. For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
4. But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
5. For every man shall bear his own burden
When we see a brother or sister of faith we, in a spirit of meekness are told it’s our responsibility to correct and/or restore that person to faith. Not out of arrogance thinking we are better than they, but with meekness and I would say, out of love for the brethren. We are to help bear those burdens whichever they are, those we can. Yet we are also told everyone will bear their own burden.
Everyone is responsible for their own decisions, whether good or bad the responsibility lies within the life of the one deciding. Sometimes persons are willing to accept our help, sometimes they decide against the offer.
Whichever it is, we should be ready to help our brethren return home to the faith.
If we do happen to think that we are something when we aren’t then we deceive ourselves. Someone may have taken some psychology courses and think they’re another Freud when infact that person would do more damage by speaking than not.
So be willing to help, but consider yourself first.
