By love serve one another.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. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins. - Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently. - Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. - Be kindly affectioned one to another in brotherly love; in honour preferring one another. - Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.We ... that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.GAL. 5:13. Gal. 6:1,2. Jas. 5:19,20. I Pet. 1:22. Rom. 13:8. Rom. 12:10. I Pet. 5:5. Rom. 15:1.

Broken BreadDAILY DEVOTIONS FROM THE DAILY LIGHTbyEvan HopkinsBy love serve one another.--Gal. 5:13All true service springs out of liberty; that is to say, there must be freedom before there can be real acceptable service. This cuts at the root of all selfishness. It is the principle of divine love. "Seeketh not her own" (1 Cor. 13:5). It is one of the chief characteristics of the mind of Christ. "Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others" (Phil. 2:4). "By love," not by knowledge only, "SERVE one another." This service shows itself in various ways. Perhaps sympathy and help are needed, then "bear ye one another's burdens." Where wrong has been done, or feelings have been wounded, then "confess your faults one to another," and "Pray ye for one another," "Forgiving one another." Where conflicting claims are clashing, then "Forbearing one another," "In honor preferring one another." "In lowliness of mind, let each esteems others better than themselves."
