Sin is like a tattoo. Once its done you can’t undo it, its permanent. And no more matter how you try to cover it up and hide it its still there. Like a tattoo, sin can be made visible so that all can see what has happened and what memories are tied to it (connecting with the story The Scarlet Letter). Don’t allow sin to be that permanent scar upon your soul. Its so easy to sin, but harder to remove it from your heart. (Just had an ah ha! moment)
(Jeremiah 2:22) 22 For though you wash yourself with lye, and use much soap,
Yet your iniquity is marked before Me,” says the Lord God.
