Wesley's Notes for Galatians 6:10


6:10 Therefore as we have opportunity - At whatever time or place, and in whatever manner we can. The opportunity in general is our lifetime; but there are also many particular opportunities. Satan is quickened in doing hurt, by the shortness of the time, #Rev 12:12|. By the same consideration let us be quickened in doing good. Let us do good - In every possible kind, and in every possible degree. Unto all men - Neighbours or strangers, good or evil, friends or enemies. But especially to them who are of the household of faith. For all believers are but one family.

    Verse 5: Each of us have various burdens that we must carry. We should try to simplify our life as much as possible and get rid of unnecessary burdens we may be carrying.

    Vs 4-5
    From time to time we should do a self examination to see how we are measuring up to God's standards. Hopefully, it will be a cause of rejoicing. If we see we need improvement, then let's strive to make changes in our lives to live up to what God expects of us. By being balanced we will not compare ourselves to others for we all must carry our own load.
