I saw the "Les Miserables" movie last night. It's fabulous. I've seen the stage production several times and the non-musical movie, and I think this is wonderful.
The story is about two men. One lives by law and vengeance, and finds in the end, that he cannot live up to this standard. The other man experiences God's love and grace and is radically changed by it. And he in turn, lives by grace and mercy and changes other lives as a result.
It's a moving story of what God's grace does in a sinner's life and the tragic consequences of trying on our own to fulfill the law.
