Why do I cry harder when you hurt me than when I hurt you?
Why do your sins grieve me more than my own?
If you’ve sinned against me, my heart is broken; shouldn’t it be doubly broken by the sin I’ve committed?
If you sin and hurt me, all that says about me is that I am vulnerable. If I sin and hurt you, what does that say about me?
My tears are backwards.
