Her sins, which are many, are forgiven, since she loved much.
Luke 7:47

So it is with our transgressions. We may be scarred by the sins of the past. But those sins, repented of and brought to Jesus for His forgiveness, can leave behind marks of beauty.

Some people, having tasted the bitterness of sin, now loathe it. They hate evil and love righteousness. Theirs is the beauty of holiness.

Others, knowing how far they fall short (Romans 3:23), have tender hearts towards others. They rise up with understanding, compassion, and kindness when others fail. Theirs is the beauty of humility.

Finally, when acts of sin are freely and thoroughly forgiven, it leads to intimacy with the One who has shown Mercy. Such sinners love much for much has been forgiven. Theirs is the beauty of love.
