God’s grace: The cause of leaving

If you see a man who has sinned and you do not pity him, the grace of God will leave you. Whoever curses bad people, and does not pray for them, will never come to know the grace of God. If you want to overcome the spirit of slander, blame not the person who falls, but the demon that prompted them to sin.

Look and pick what it is good in men and leave what it is bad.
