In India, women like to stain their feet and hands with a light, reddish-brown color. They call it Mehendi. It’s beautiful.
But there’s a reason for this fashion—the daily grime of living in poverty.
It’s a beautiful cover-up.
Spiritually, I beautifully cover-up my selfishness and pride under the color of the good that I do or the evil I avoid.
But Jesus prefers that I see myself as He sees me: In the words of the old hymn: “Just as I Am”.
And then, He doesn’t merely cover my sins. He forgives them.
1 John 1:7-10
