Mitzvah #15 - Emulate Gcd's ways

One should make every effort to emulate Hashem's "personality".

Since Hashem is kind we should be kind.

Since Hashem is merciful we should be merciful.

Since Hashem overlooks our shortcomings, we should overlook other people's shortcoming.

So too with all other behaviors that we find are ascribed to Hashem in the Tanach and Medrash.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, all the time.
