Proverbs 15 1 Is a way God is extending to us his grace. For us not to be involved in the wrath of this angry and sinful people. God separate us so that we do not yoke with unbeliever vengeful nature because God 's people are peaceful believer in God of peace and love.

this is a very powerful yet gentle proverb that we all need to abide by... gentleness comes with strict patience and a loving heart.
