"Refrain From Wrongdoing And Live More Fully."

I FEEL A CONSTANT, TENDER LOVE FOR YOU, knowing that even when you try to do good, making a mistake is inevitable. That's what it means to be human.

For instance, when you clip your dog's nails, you're trying to prevent him from hurting others by making sure his nails aren't too sharp. And it's for his own good, too, since if you didn't clip his nails, he might experience discomfort.

It's not unlike what I want for you. I want you to avoid hurting others with the sharpness of your misdeeds. But to succeed in this regard, you must rely on me to do the hard work of de-sharpening you—just like you do for your dog.

As you attend to all these tasks in devotion to your dog—nail-clipping, de-shedding, giving him a bath—see how I am always with you.

Say to them, 'As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, O house of Israel?'
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
