What could have caused the disaster in this photo? When we see images like this we don’t usually think of it as being broken or a broken world, but clearly something happened here. Something catastrophic. Perhaps the great flood of Noah, earthquakes, the shifting of the earth plates, typhoons. Answer is we don’t know. That being said, though it is broken it reflects a beauty we all can appreciate.
Careful how we judge
Often we confront broken people in our lives, and we look at them differently. We see the depravity rather than a treasure. Our world doesn’t hold the same value in people. That may be because of our experiences with people cause us pain and hurt. We make judgements based on what people do and say. So our love for people appear conditional.
A Broken World yields such beauty in transformation.
God saw the treasure in us before the foundations of the world. He sees beyond what we see in ourselves. He will put this world back together. He will mend your brokenness. All we have to do is seek Him. In Mathew 15:30-31 It says, “Great crowds came to him, bringing the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute and many others, and laid them at his feet; and He (JESUS) healed them. The people were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled made well, the lame walking and the blind seeing. And they praised the God of Isreal.”
Our part, as men is to point out to others the way to the Father, which is Jesus Christ. And allow God to do his work in our hearts. Jesus says in John 14:6 “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
