God’s jealousy is rooted in his care and concern for us. As we mentioned recently in our description of His aseity, God does not need us. Therefore the kind of jealousy that we are accustomed to is not what we see in Him. His heart breaks for us when we make poor choices, when we are distracted from Him and when we hurt each other but not because of what it does to Him. He is heartbroken because of the consequences we must face as a result these things. The wonderful news is that God’s heart can take it. He is momentarily saddened but knows that He’s prepared opportunity for us to turn things around.
