Reproofs: to Be Given in Love
Preaching on John 13:14: the duty of disciples to wash one another's feet: Mr. Finlayson, of Helmsdale, observed, 'One way in which disciples wash one another's feet is by reproving one another. But the reproof must not be couched in angry words, so as to destroy the effect; nor in tame, so as to fail of effect. Just as in washing a brother's feet, you must not use boiling water to scald, nor frozen water to freeze them.'
