Did you know, in the Bible it says
God's kindness leads to repentance?
At first thought, it seems like giving a cookie
to a child who has told a lie.
It all seems upside down.
But if you think about it.
Our being right with God
is not as much about us
as it is about God.
We never did deserve his forgiveness.
He gives it out of His kindness
and His loving nature.
That's pretty good news,
for those who believe in God
and for those who have mistaken thoughts
about God and His nature.
