The Doorpost: Be careful to serve one another in love

But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another.

Galatians 5:15

The believers in the churches in the region of Galatia were under assault from some who insisted that they add the Law of Moses to their newfound faith in Jesus. Evidently, there must have been a significant amount of conflict among them.

Paul reminded them that they were called to freedom, but he warned them to use their freedom to serve one another through love. He said that the word “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” fulfilled the whole law. 

He concluded with the warning above. When we bite and devour one another, it isn’t only our relationships that are destroyed. We ourselves are destroyed. Be careful to serve one another in love.
