Isaiah tells us, “Though your sins be like scarlet they may become white as snow.” If there is some awful thing that you once did, and if that thing comes back to haunt you, don’t despair. There is no limit to God’s mercy. He is ready with forgiveness that will leave your soul white as snow, gleaming like the full moon we are treated to this week.
But you must do your part in this clean-up. You can’t go on pretending you’re a saint: complaining about the behavior of others, as though you were a superior person. “Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”
