Paul goes over the teachings of Christ in Galatians Chapter 6. He covers topics including helping each other and always doing good.

Helping Each Other
Paul mentioned that there may be some people in the fellowship who were doing things that were not right. He instructed the ones who were living in the way of the Spirit to gently correct that person. He gave a warning to the ones living in the Spirit to be careful that they do not get tempted to sin while helping the others.
In addition, Paul said that nobody was too important to help others. He warned against comparing oneself with others. He said one should only look at their own work and life and accept responsibility for only the tasks they have been given individually.
Always Do Good
Paul said in Galatians Chapter 6 that those who were learning God’s Word should share their blessings with their teacher. He then discussed the notion of sowing what one reaps. Those who give heed to the lust of the flesh, Paul explained, would end up reaping negative things such as corruption and sins.
On the other hand, those that sowed in the Spirit would reap rewards like everlasting life. That is what Jesus promised to those who listened to and followed His words.
Paul’s Concluding Remarks
Paul ended his letter to the Galatians by saying he wrote the letter himself. He said there are many who will still preach about the importance of circumcision, but that was only because they do not think Christ is enough.
He reiterated that Christ was enough and circumcision was no longer important for those who were not under the law. Finally, he signs off by saying that he would pray that Jesus’ grace would be with them always.
Galatians 6 (King James Version)
1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
5 For every man shall bear his own burden.
6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
11 Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.
12 As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.
13 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.
14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.
18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
