BROTHERS and SISTERS, we who are strong should bear with the weaknesses of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please our neighbor for the good purpose of building up the neighbor. For even Christ did not please Himself, but, as it is written, “The insults of those who insulted You (God the Father) have fallen on Me (Jesus Christ)” (Psalm 69:9). For whatever was written before was written for our instruction, so that by the patience and encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. May the God of patience and encouragement grant you to be together of the same mind according to Christ Jesus, so that together you may, with one mind and one voice, glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ accepted you, to the glory of God.
Saint John Chrysostom on building up our neighbors,
Have you become powerful? Render a return to God for making you so. You will duly render it if you set the weakness of the sickly right. For we too were weak, but by grace we have become powerful. And this we are to do not only in this case, but also in the case of those who are weak in other respects. For instance, if one is passionate, or insolent, or has any failing of this kind, bear with him. And how is this to be? Listen to what come next. Are you powerful? Let the weak have trial of your power. Leet him come to know your strength. And so if you are rich or in power, do not please yourself but the poor and needy, because in this way you will at once have true glory to enjoy, and be doing much service. For glory from things of the world soon flies away, but that from things of the Spirit is abiding, if you do it to edification.
