Wrath, is anger out of control. Getting so mad you exhibit wrath is something in which no wise person indulges because is has a terrible effect on the person who gets mad. It is very destructive to ones personal relations with others. 

Anger is also a depressant of ones personal spirit as so much energy is expended in violent anger that the angry person is spiritually depleted. Anger that is less violent but seethes deep in the mind and simmers as a long term grudge is also self destructive. It permits a constant leakage of personal spiritual energy.

There is an effective method for keeping from anger even when you are confronted by the anger of someone else. It requires practice, but once you acquire the skill, you will be amazed by the amount of self control it will give you. It is found in Proverbs 15:1, "A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger."

The next time you feel the anger rising up in you, remember and repeat several times this verse from Proverbs. You will be able to feel the effect on yourself. If you practice it in actions you will not transforming effects on your relationships with others. This is one of the golden keys to powerful spiritual living.
