Grieving the heart of God.

Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. Genesis 6:5-6

Started trying to read through the Bible this year and I came upon this little verse at the beginning of the Noah narrative. I haven’t been able to shake it. The thought that God was sorry for creating people. This makes two quick thoughts come to mind. 1) How can God regret something and 2) What have I done to make him sorry? Is He sorry that He has called me into ministry?
