to those with no peace…  (please read)“I’m sorry. I know I have done something terribly wrong,”  I said.

“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?
