What God Values in the Destructiveness of Sin

As much as he hates sin, there must be something else he values so highly that it is worth the cost of sin’s destructiveness.  [John] Newton argues that this greater goal is the fashioning of humble and contrite hearts in God’s chosen people, as through their ongoing weakness and sin, they come to trust themselves less and less and to trust and delight in Christ more and more.
