Who Is Brother?
He who understands your silence.
He who will be a balance in the seasaw of life.
He who considers your needs before your deservings.
He who to himself is true and therefore must be so to you.
He who, when he reaches the top of the ladder, does not
forget you if you are at the bottom.
He who is the same today when prosperity smiles upon you,
and tomorrow when adversity and sorrows come.
He who cheerfully comes in when all the world has gone out;
who weeps with you when the laughing is away.
He who guards your interests as his own, neither flatters
nor deceives, gives just praise to your good deeds, and equally
condemns your bad acts.
He who is the same to you in the society of the wealthy and
proud, as in the solitude of poverty; whose cheerful smile
sheds sunshine in every company.
You ask in earnest,"Who is my brother?"
A friend who stickth closer than a brother?
Mother,Father,Sister,Brother or Any other,
In whose heart, Jesus lives to work and stir.
