Why the heck do we have to say sorry to God when we wrong others?
Maybe it’s because He loves those people so much that it hurts Him when I hurt them.
Oh, and maybe that’s why I need to apologize when in the privacy of my own head I lust or covet or hate. Because God knows I’m not doing myself any favors. And he loves me enough that it sucks for him too.
It’s funny how analyzing the logistical theology of third party forgiveness brings us back to how much he freakin loves us.
