Sin is evil, but God can turn evil into good in many different ways:
The sinner’s weakness arouses divine sympathy:
“That is why the Lord is so patient with us, why He is so free with his mercy.
He looks at us and knows that we are doomed to die; that is why He is so willing to forgive us.
We can show compassion to someone we know,
but the Lord shows compassion for all humanity.
He corrects us; he disciplines us;
he teaches us. Like a shepherd tending sheep,
He brings us back to Himself.
He will have compassion on us if we accept His guidance and are eager for Him to show us where we are wrong.”
