Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 6:10

_ _ Translate, “So then, according as (that is, in proportion as) we have season (that is, opportunity), let us work (a distinct Greek verb from that for “do,” in Galatians 6:9) that which is (in each case) good.” As thou art able, and while thou art able, and when thou art able (Ecclesiastes 9:10). We have now the “season” for sowing, as also there will be hereafter the “due season” (Galatians 6:9) for reaping. The whole life is, in one sense, the “seasonable opportunity” to us: and, in a narrower sense, there occur in it more especially convenient seasons. The latter are sometimes lost in looking for still more convenient seasons (Acts 24:25). We shall not always have the opportunity “we have” now. Satan is sharpened to the greater zeal in injuring us, by the shortness of his time (Revelation 12:12). Let us be sharpened to the greater zeal in well-doing by the shortness of ours.

_ _ them who are of the household — Every right-minded man does well to the members of his own family (1 Timothy 5:8); so believers are to do to those of the household of faith, that is, those whom faith has made members of “the household of God” (Ephesians 2:19): “the house of God” (1 Timothy 3:15; 1 Peter 4:17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 6:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 6:10

Therefore as we have opportunity — At whatever time or place, and in whatever manner we can. The opportunity in general is our lifetime; but there are also many particular opportunities. Satan is quickened in doing hurt, by the shortness of the time, Revelation 12:12. By the same consideration let us be quickened in doing good. Let us do good — In every possible kind, and in every possible degree. Unto all men — Neighbours or strangers, good or evil, friends or enemies. But especially to them who are of the household of faith. For all believers are but one family.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Galatians 6:10

(8) As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all [men], especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

(8) Those that are of the household of faith, that is, those who are joined with us in the profession of one self same religion, ought to be preferred before all others, yet in such a way that our generosity extends to all.
