Psalms 103:8-9 (NET) The Lord is compassionate and merciful; he is patient and demonstrates great loyal love. He does not always accuse, and does not stay angry.

Chide and Faith's marriage was heading for the rocks because they both did not know how to overlook offenses and forgive each other. Chide was not compassionate and merciful in dealing with his wife but was full of accusations and anger towards her. Faith believed her husband did not love her anymore so she stopped making an effort in the relationship.

Their marriage was saved when they started to individually truly live according to the divine nature that they have received in Christ. They truly decided to forgive each other and be patient in dealing with one another. Chide was taught by his pastor to never again nurse accusations against his wife in his heart, but rather focus on the good in her. They were both taught to never go to bed angry over any situation (Ephesians 2:26).

We cannot desire to be like the Lord without learning this important attribute of His character: the Lord is merciful and gracious. He is patient and demonstrates great love. Being merciful is essential to having the spirit and character of Christ. We must also learn to not just love in our hearts but be demonstrators of our love for one another. The most potent way we demonstrate love is by giving. Let our love not just be in words but with action(see 1 John 3:18). Let people feel comfortable around you and know that you care.

Call people, ask about their wellbeing, give gifts(even if small), make sacrifices that show that you care. This is the Christian way.

Go into today remembering to be more merciful, patient, and loving. Proverbs 3:3-4 reveals that being merciful is a key to walking in favor in the sight of God and people.

Prayer: Lord, help me demonstrate your love to everyone I have to deal with. Help me to be truly merciful and gracious. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
