you, that if you ?remind? me of it after you sin, that will demonstrate
that you see yourselves as close to me, and I?ll give you some measure of
forbearance for the sins, even in the absence of full Teshuvah.?
The best Mashal I could think of for this is a PBA placard ? you buy it and
put it in your car, and when the cop pulls you over for speeding, you show
it to him and he goes easy on you, because he sees that you?re really a
friend of the police. NOT because you demonstrated regret for speeding,

Does that make sense?"

Not really, Hashem is perfect and all knowing, you can't bribe him. Why
should you need to remind him of anything? Hashem knows exactly who you are
and how close you are to him.
