Bear One Another's Burdens

Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:1-2 ESV)

We are to help each other overcome sin and temptation, to bear each other's burdens just as Christ bore our greatest burden - our sin and the wrath of God for that sin. And when we are helping to restore others we should be gentle with them rather than the all-too-often judgementalism we Christians have. Oh and when this verse talks of those who are 'spiritual' it's not meaning some elite class of Christian (we all sin, we all have burdens, we all need restoration and help); but of mature Christians, or perhaps its a compliment to those who humbly & gently help . . .
