A Faithful Parent

November 13, 2019

God is to us a faithful parent.  As such, God grieves at the thought of harm befalling us.  It is God's heartfelt desire that we live the lives God calls us to live, but it is also God's desire to spare us from the repercussions of our failings.  There is a tension here, but in the end God chooses compassion over condemnation, and mercy over judgement.
