Shalom,I’m so happy you got a chance to meet D…. ( M….. brother). They still need a little help getting along, but they are getting there. Maybe you can speak to him and explain to him that his brother really loves him, but the way he is now- I’m also glad you had a good Chanukah with your family.

And he offers a simple litmus test to distinguish between them.
A true Servant of G-d wants to see everyone serving Him and doing His will, to increase the Honor of G-d in the world. Someone only out for his own benefit doesn’t really care if other people are doing what they should or not; he’s content with his own reward.
