Let me ask you a question at the beginning of this Advent season, How are you with brokenness? Yours? Others? Mankind's in general?
Advent is a gift, one that is best received in quietness. It's a time to open the doors of our hearts to the Light that came into the world, a Light born of love that longs to draw us back to Himself. But as any light will do, it will expose...our hearts...our sins...our failures...our broken dreams...our shattered hopes. Not so that we may be judged, but because He knows, better than we do, how very much we need to be restored.
Advent is all about reconciliation between a Holy God and broken mankind. It was true 2,000 years ago. And it's still true today.
Which brings me back again to the question, How are you with brokenness?
