I look at my desk and see chips in the veneer; and yes, you are right – that tells you it is not solid wood. It fitted my needs, when I bought it.
I do have a remedy for the damage; a small bottle of stain. It came with the purchase. I can readily disguise the small areas of damage, making the desk surface look new again.
Christians can become flawed too, but these misdemeanors (or sins) can be obvious. The Bible has specific instructions on what is proper behavior for God’s people. Repair (or forgiveness) in these instances has to come from God. His mercy and grace can repair any spiritual imperfections.
Just as I return the desktop to its former beauty; God can do the same for us.
Let Him restore you today. He can, if you will let Him.
