A wrathful man is a sick man

A man who is wrathful with us is a sick man; we must apply a plaster to his heart - love; we must treat him kindly, speak to him, gently, lovingly.  And if there is not deeply-rooted malice against us within him, but only a temporary fit of anger, you will see how his heart, or his malice, will melt away through your kindness and love - how good will conquer evil.  A Christian must always be kind, gracious and wise in order to conquer evil by good.
