"What am I after when I judge my brother? As long as I do not see him as the Lord sees him, all my judgments will be wrong. Begin rather by prayer for him, by the idea of being obedient, of not judging your brethren. Begin by the desire to serve others with love, like (St.) Silouan, who, on feast days, was grateful to be allowed to serve hundreds of monks in the refectory. He was so happy to see how much Christ loved these people, these children of God. He served them with much love. Everyday tasks, accomplished in such a spirit, can become an extremely pleasant spiritual food. Because of such an attitude of service, in the evening your heart will be very tender, and you will weep before God over your own defects, your own lack of love."
Archimandrite Sophrony [083]
