Psalms 145:8 -- On Emulating God

"The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy."
Psalms 145:8

Reading this, I was thinking about walking in God's ways and becoming more like him, and what the world would be like if we all were gracious, full of compassion, slow to anger, and of great mercy.  Seems like the world would be at least 900 times better than now, right? :)

Today, maybe these are some things we can focus on and work to improve.  Sometimes we think that because of our title, gender, or other role, we have to be "tough" and give up some of these qualities to be respected or taken seriously, but God transcends all that.  It is okay to be good people all the way through, no matter what others expect.  Let's be bold enough to emulate God and let people see our compassionate side, and work on the way we treat, and see, others. :)
