<297> Thesis: The most significant focal point in "doing good" is the "catechist" and the most significant act of "doing good" is actually walking by the Spirit. Introduction: It seems that the longer we ponder any given text of Scripture, the more likely we are to see a meaning that has fundamentally escaped the commentators and preachers. As we begin our study of this new paragraph this evening, we are going to see that, once again, our thoughts have been diverted into paths not consistent with the apostle's understanding and teaching. A cursory glance at the "parallel passage" lists in the Bibles and Bible programs reveals that the general understanding of Galatians 5:6 is that the people who are taught the Word ought to share their material wealth with those who do the teaching. This "understanding" has a high probability of being more of a "misunderstanding" than of a legitimate grasp of what Paul was attempting to get the Galatians to "do".
