Correcting in Love

If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone Matthew 18:15
“Reckon him no more amongst the number of thy brethren. But yet neither is his salvation on that account to be neglected. For the very heathen, that is, the Gentiles and Pagans, we do not reckon among the number of brethren; but yet are we ever seeking their salvation” – St. Augustine

What fruit should we expect?

We are the trees, in the garden of the Lord. We are perhaps a variety of different trees, but we are all meant to bear good fruit, which means receiving a new nature from him, living in charity, and letting ourselves be pruned. “The tree is the soul, that is, the man himself; the fruit is the man’s works.” AUGUSTINE
