Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 10, Chapter 27, Text 15

SB 10.27.15

sri-bhagavan uvaca
maya te ’kari maghavan
 makha-bhango ’nugrhnata
mad-anusmrtaye nityam
 mattasyendra-sriya bhrsam
The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: My dear Indra, it was out of mercy that I stopped the sacrifice meant for you. You were greatly intoxicated by your opulence as King of heaven, and I wanted you to always remember Me.
According to Sridhara Svami, Indra and Lord Krsna here exchange a heart-to-heart talk. Indra revealed his mind to the Lord, and now Lord Krsna similarly reveals His own intention.
In text 11 of this chapter, Indra emphatically declared that Lord Krsna is in fact everything, and thus, according to Indra’s own criteria, forgetting Lord Krsna is clearly a state of insanity. When the Supreme Lord reminds us of His supreme existence, He is not proudly advertising Himself like a mundane politician or entertainer. The Lord is self-satisfied in His own infinite existence and is trying, lovingly, to bring us back to our own perfect existence as His eternal associates.
From God’s point of view even the mighty King of heaven, Indra, is a mere child — and a naughty child at that — and thus the Lord, being a caring father, punished His child and brought him back to the sanity of Krsna consciousness.
