Galatians 5:22–6:2

22On the other hand, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, 23gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law! 24Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts. 25If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit! 26Let us not become arrogant, challenging and envying one another. 

1Brethren, even if someone is caught in some fault, you who are spiritual must restore such a person in a spirit of gentleness. But watch out for yourself in order not to be tempted. 2Bear each others’ burdens, and thus fulfill the law of Christ.
