The God we serve is a forgiving God. One who balances His decrees and our self-interests, not out of equality or fair play but of equity (value) and sovereignty. This is what makes Him worthy of all our praises, thanksgiving, and worship. He is an awesome God and when compared to other so-called gods and deities have no equal because who really wants or needs to serve a vindictive superior being. The history of mankind has always been one of struggle, tyranny, and freedom. Of those taking advantage of the humble, less endowed and helpless.
