Loving the brethren
Troubles arrive in two ways in brotherly love
1. Cain abel relationship
Your brother is more righteous than you
A. We always think we are right.
– Cain, Joseph’s brothers,
– You can not search your heart….. Your justification is not effective.
– the description of your relationship is “Keeper”
– Being responsible for another persons doings and whereabouts
– Best thing to do is LOVE
– Share truth
2. Brother in need
1 John 3:11-18
Love One Another
For this is the message that you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. We should not be like Cain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own deeds were evil and his brother’s righteous. Do not be surprised, brothers, that the world hates you. We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. Whoever does not love abides in death. Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
