Admonition 25

Day 28:

Admonition 25 1.

Of True love

Blessed is that brother who would love his brother as much when he is ill and not able to assist him as he loves him when he is well and able to assist him. Blessed is the brother who would love and fear his brother as much when he is far from him as he would when with him, and who would not say anything about him behind his back that he could not with charity say in his presence.2.

    1. Love is unconditional
    2. Building real relationships that once built are not marred by distance.
    3. If we are back biters and cannot tell a fellow Christian their failings in their presence then we do not have a relationship with that person. To speak about them uncharitably when they are absent shows only our own shortcomings and says nothing about them.
