(14) GOD IS GRIEVED WHEN WE SIN.

14. GOD IS GRIEVED WHEN WE SIN.
Genesis 6:6,7 – “And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. So the LORD said, ‘I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.'”
Sin is the violation of God’s will, and it breaks His heart when His creation chooses to rebel against Him. God does not rejoice in the destruction of the wicked but rather grieves over it (cf. Eze. 18:32). Nevertheless, He will punish the impenitent when the time is right.
