Wise men ought to have understanding enough to conquer men with kindness. "A soft answer turneth away wrath," says the wise man; and it will be greatly to the credit of the Latter-day Saints to show the love of God, by now kindly treating those who may have, in an unconscious moment, done wrong; for truly said Jesus, Pray for thine enemies.

He [Heavenly Father] is our perfect Father. He loves us beyond our capacity to understand. He knows what is best for us. He sees the end from the beginning. He wants us to act to gain needed experience:“When He answers yes, it is to give us confidence.“When He answers no, it is to prevent error.“When He withholds an answer, it is to have us grow through faith in Him, obedience to His commandments, and a willingness to act on truth.

Love is not love that alters
When it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
Oh no, it is an ever fixed mark
That looks on tempest and is never shaken.

I am amazed at the seeker of purity
When time for polishing comes
Complaints of harsh treatment
Love is a lawsuit
Without evidence, you will not win
My son, when one beats the rug
The beating is not intended against the rug
But against the dust inside the rug
My son, that harsh treatment
Is not intended against you
But against the ill qualities inside you
