Any parent can tell you, "Don't treat my kids badly." It just so happens that God notices when we treat His kids, His creation badly. That is why we talked about where you and I are to show concern. Because in your lives, your concern it's not to be focused on you, instead the focus is to be on the you beside you. We can live our lives thinking our relationship with God is a vertical thing. And then we find out our relationship with Him is lived out horizontally.
