Practicing The Presence of God

If we really love God, we would try harder not to offend Him.

One long-standing spiritual tool to help us minimize the frequency at which we sin, is to constantly remind ourselves that He is always at our side.  

We engage in this practice not out of fear that He is taking detailed notes of every one of our sins, but rather as a means of motivating ourselves to strive harder to love Him, to please Him and to act as a child of God ought to do.
