When I ask my children if they brushed their teeth, they sometimes answer yes even if they didn't brush their teeth, simply because they know that's the right answer.  

I'm not asking my children because I want to get after them for not doing it, it's because I know it will improve their health to form that habit and brush their teeth regularly.  

When God helps me recognize my mistakes, it's not because he wants me to feel bad, it's because he loves me and wants me to be better.
