Intimacy and punishment!
“From among all the families on the earth, I have been intimate with you alone. That is why I must punish you for all your sins.”
Amos 3:2 NLT
Contrary to what we might believe, is that intimate or close relationship that we have with God what precisely gives to him the freedom to punish us when we have sinned.
