The hypothesis of this episode is that God is patient with us in our process of spiritual growth because He is a good Father. The experiment is to look closely at our lives in order to see clearly God’s acts of grace and patience toward us.
The Heavenly Father cares more about being close with us in the process of life and growth than about our performance. Instead of trying to be perfect, we should focus on our intimacy with God. For God, the process is what matters, not how successful we seem to be.
