"FIX IT!"


The Catholic archbishop and novelist, Andrew Greeley, brilliantly describes God’s redemptive work and holy clean-up as "God’s big crayon making crooked lines straight," but this only addresses the result, not the process. It reminds me of when, as a young boy, my mother and I would color at the same coloring book--she on one page while I colored on another. Her work was beautiful. My work was that of a child with lousy motor skills. The grain would change direction and the colors would go outside the lines. I would look at her work and back at mine, then shove the book over so that my work was in front of hers. "Fix it!" I would plead. And she would go over my crossed grains to smooth out the texture and use a big crayon to enclose my mistakes in bigger lines. It never looked as good as her work, but it looked much better.


That is how I look at forgiveness of sin. It would have been better if we hadn’t, but God has already taken it into consideration and can "Fix it!" The good news is that he can fix it better than my mother could fix my coloring book.
