Correction or Not?

“The Law, in its imperfection says: ‘Attend to yourself’ (Deut. 4:9). The Lord, in His perfection, tells us to correct our brother, saying, ‘If your brother sins against you, etc.’ (Matt. 18:15). If your reproof, or rather your reminder, can be pure and humble, then do as the Lord commanded, particularly in the case of those who will accept it. But if your progress has not reached this far, at least do what the Law says.” · St. John Climacus
