Saying of the Desert Christians: Gentleness 6


Abba Xanthios said, "A dog is better than I am, for he has love and he does not judge."

Some thoughts:

This is a wonderful one, is it not? At first I wondered why it was in the section on Gentleness instead of that of Judging Others but then I realized, not judging others is also treating them with gentleness.

I am Episcopalian and the General Convention of my church is meeting even as I type to decide some stuff that will affect how we express what it is to be Episcopalians. I pray that all attendees practice this sort of gentleness.
