I am a Christian family man, Lay Pastor and writer from Deep East Texas. I love life, and I enjoy working with young people. I have published two books; "A Small Mind Among Tall Trees" and "God If You Are Not Too Busy, Can You Give Me a Hand". If you want to obtain a copy drop me an e-mail or go to or barnesand . I have been a salesman, cowman and athlete in my past. I still have a strong sense of humor and am not afraid to use it.

Galatians 6:1-6

Relax, Read and Reflect.
Prayer- Lord, Open my heart and open my mind and help me learn. Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
Doing Good to All
1Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. 2Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. 3If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else, 5for each one should carry his own load.
6Anyone who receives instruction in the word must share all good things with his instructor.
Human beings are by nature a social animal. We need other people! Often, we think we can change the world by ourselves, only to find the world changes us! This is where the church is so important. We are called to help each other; to strengthen each other, teach and share the burdens of life. No man is an island. The true power of the Holy Spirit comes when we all work together.
Look at the last verse again. Paul is telling you to share with your instructor. I do consider myself an instructor so.... Trust me, I do not know all of the answers. So I am looking for truth and clarification from the best and brightest. In other words- I want to hear from you.
Prayer- Lord, give me the strength needed to do your work, and the wisdom to remember I can not do it alone. Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
