"Mr Emeka Igwe you are sentenced to death by hanging for murdering your wife Mrs Joy Igwe in cold blood"

The crowd in the court erupted, Emeka just stood there motionless as a statue. His mind did a flashback and he remembered everything  just like yesterday. He had been at the oil rig for 2 weeks and he was given the opportunity to go home for 3 days, he didn't call his wife because he wanted to surprise her. 

As he entered their house, the smell of Oud and roses filled the air and he began to suspect that his wife must have known that he was coming, he heard her giggle and moan, he was sure someone had let her in on the surprise but what he saw when he entered the bedroom shocked him, his wife was naked on the bed with a man under her.  She froze as she saw him and began to cry. 

Emeka ran into his study and brought out his gun, he could hear rapid footsteps like someone was running away, he wouldn't let that bastard escape, he could see the back of the man and then he took aim and just as he did, his wife stood in front of the gun with her hands raised as though to shield the man and the bullet ripped into her and came out on the other side, she died on the spot. 

Now he was going to die for killing his wife. Emeka was placed on death row and finally the day came. The noose was put on his neck and his sentence was being read when a call came in to say that Emeka had been pardoned. It was at that point he started crying, there was no doubt that God was giving him a fresh start. 

When Moses said to God "show me your glory" God showed Moses and this is how God was described in Exodus 34:6  6And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, MERCIFUL  and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, 7Keeping MERCY for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation

God is a merciful God! What is mercy? It is simply God refusing to see your wrongs. We all need mercy in life. How do you attract mercy? There is only one way, show mercy to people! God KEEPS mercy for people but if you want mercy to be kept for you, you have to be merciful! 

Forget that loan, forgive that person, be good to that person that hates you. When you do this, you have stored mercy for yourself. I pray for that you will not lack mercy in your life in Jesus name. 

You too can be a social media evangelist. Please share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed. #ThankYouJesus
