Hashem's Love for us never changes

Parshat Acharei Mot, 16:16 reads. וְכִפֶּ֣ר עַל־הַקֹּ֗דֶשׁ מִטֻּמְאֹת֙ בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל וּמִפִּשְׁעֵיהֶ֖ם לְכׇל־חַטֹּאתָ֑ם וְכֵ֤ן יַעֲשֶׂה֙ לְאֹ֣הֶל מוֹעֵ֔ד הַשֹּׁכֵ֣ן אִתָּ֔ם בְּת֖וֹךְ טֻמְאֹתָֽם  This is the goal of the avodah that the Kohen Gadol would do on Yom HaKippurim.  Rashi comments:  "Even though they are impure, the shechina is among them."  Rav Yerucham HaLevi Levovitz comments on this rashi that Hashem does not change as a result of the people's sins. Hashem has the same desires after the sin as He did prior- to walk with man. This is a simple yet powerful idea. We may think that Hashem loves us a little less after we sin.  Sin does not change Hashem, however. It only changes us.  Our goal should be to remember that Hashem loves us just as much after we sin and wants to be with us just as much.

Action Item:  Medidate on the fact that Hashem loves us after we sin just as much as he does before we sin.
