Jottings – Are You Broken?
Usually when something is broken, its value declines or disappears altogether. Broken dishes, broken bottles, broken mirrors are generally scrapped. Even a crack in furniture or a tear in cloth greatly reduces its resale value.
But it isn’t that way in the spiritual realm. God puts a premium on broken things–especially on broken people. That is why we read such verses as: Psalm 34:18, Psalm 51:17, and James 4:6.
William MacDonald in True Discipleship p. 147. Amazing! God places great value on broken people. Are you broken? Am I? But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7.
