In California, many cars are stolen every year. It is rare to find the car in the same day. In 1981, a private car was stolen. Its owner informed the police of the theft. He told the police that he left on the seat biscuits mixed with poison which he prepared to be put in the garage for killing mice. He feared that the thief would eat it and get poisoned. The police warned the thief of eating the biscuits in all mass media. They did their best in searching for the thief not to punish him but to save him and those who were with him.
Likewise, when God asks us to return to him and turns us from doing evil, He does not do this to punish us but to save us from perdition.
You seek my repentance,
Not my punishment.
With Your love, You save me from the death of sin.
Lies graver than Wounds
