How is redemption shown in A Christmas Carol?

Only when Scrooge is shown his future is he able to consider how to redeem himself. Upon seeing the absence of Tiny Tim at the Cratchits, the attitude of those at his funeral and his nephew’s defense of him throughout the story, Scrooge sees his only redemption is through change and acceptance. Hence when he wakes up Christmas morning, those he has treated as lesser people in account of money, he lavishes with gifts and love. He can only be redeemed when he sees money does not make people nicer or happier - in reality it makes them miserable and desperate. Redemption is shown when Scrooge realises that true happiness comes from sharing lives and love with those around you. Hope this helps.
