Plenteous in Mercy

The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. Psalms 103:8

I would want to be more like the Lord, slow to anger and full of mercy. Many times I am too quick to grow angry, and slow to show mercy to the one who angered me. As I look at the scriptures I see many times that the Lord could have been angry but wasn’t and I am quick to judge those of old and say I would never do that. Also I am glad that the Lord is full of mercy, because He never gave up on me. When I think on these things I realize that I should give the same mercy to others. God didn’t give up on me, He waited and was merciful to me. Every time I sin, the Lord is slow to grow angry and forgives me each time, or when I do or say the wrong thing, the Lord is gracious to me, by chastising me and showing me a better way. How much more of an example do I need, in the ways to deal with others, than Jesus.
