“I forgive you,” He said.
“I can’t forgive myself. How can you forgive me? ” I said.
“I always do.” he answered. ” I don’t keep a record of rights and wrong, you know?”
“You don’t?” I said, incredulously. “I was always told you did. In fact, I was always told you would punish me for my mistakes.”
“Bad press!” he smiled. ” Unfortunately, people project their behaviour onto me. I love you, so where’s the question of punishment?”
“I don’t know how to thank you.” I cried.
“Remember, my deep love for you and abide in it. My grace is sufficient for you.” He said.
Do you believe in a God who punishes us or a God who forgives us?
