God doesn't punish you

Divine Love never stops loving.

Step Out Of a cozy home into chilly winter air. The impact can be noticeable. Now stand directly in the warm rays of the sunshine, and you can feel really comfortable. But move into the shade, and it's hard to avoid the shivers. You wouldn't think of the sun as punishing you for stepping into the shadows. The sun just shines. It's still there to warm you up.

Some people think that God gets angry and punishes those who turn away from Him. But that's not the nature of God. He isn't a wrathful superperson who aims to harm. Instead, like the sun, He's always shining. Right there to bless us even if we think of ourselves as walking away from His radiant presence.
