I’m sure you have heard the phrase, “What goes around, comes around.” Usually that phrase is used with a negative connotation. It goes something like this: “You do somebody wrong, and somebody else will do you wrong.” But as we will see in today’s lesson in Galatians, the phrase can also be used in positive sense. “You show someone kindness, and someone else will show you kindness!”
Just imagine what the millennial and the new earth will be like, when everyone shows kindness to one another. Yes we will serve others, but we will be served by all. But God doesn’t want us to wait for heaven to practice this principle. He wants us now as believers to exercise the freedom we have in Christ in love for one another!
