If there is a God, what does he think about you? Our typical answer is: he’s mad. It seems like everyone is mad about something, so God definitely is too. And, probably mad about something we’ve done too, right? But, what if we’re wrong about how God sees us? What if he’s different? What if he’s better? What if he’s actually not mad at you at all?
