6:2 Bear ye one another's burdens - Sympathize with, and assist, each other, in all your weaknesses, grievances, trials. And so fulfil the law of Christ - The law of Christ (an uncommon expression) is the law of love: this our Lord peculiarly recommends; this he makes the distinguishing mark of his disciples.

    This wonderful verse brightened my day. When someone repays back your kindness with wickedness. What can we do? With this verse we can be comforted because when we stay true to God we reap the peace. Sometimes people don't know that they are acting uncivilised.

    A powerful statement indeed. Please pray for peace and God's direction in my family, and for all families who need His almighty help. Thank you God, in Jesus' mighty name, Amen.

    We can't mock God so as to challenge him by thinking we can do wrong and get away with it. One will always reap what they sow.

    Every word I speak and every thing I do will come back to me in the order that I put it out !!! I do believe that my God is not mocked to snear the nose up at , for whatsoever I sow I shall reap. Take heed !! Good and bad !!

    Be faithful to God and plant good seeds that will give good harvest that for sure you will reap. If you mock God and do evil against His will, you will reap evil. Stay close to God and you will have all the blessings the heaven can provide. Reap from God and you will have good productive plants you will be blessed in everything you do.

    We can not mock God, verse 7 shows that we will reap what we sow sooner or later.
