St. John Chrysostom on Loving Others

Do not tell me that this or that man is a runaway slave, or a robber or thief, or laden with countless faults, or that he is a beggar and hopeless, or of low value and worthy of no account; but consider that for his sake Christ died … Consider what sort of person he must be, whom Christ valued at so high a price as not to have spared even his own blood.

– St. John Chrysostom, Homily Concerning Lowliness of Mind, 5
