Have you ever given or received a gift that had somehow got broken before it was opened?

“And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.” Mark 2:3

Looking through Jesus’ life it seems most everything people brought to him was broke is some way. Even the alabaster box of ointment was broken before it was given to Him.

It seems we have it backward. We try to fix everything, and clean it up before we go to Jesus with it. Maybe we are too prideful to take Him our brokennes, but we are horrible at fixing things on our own. Jesus loves broken gifts: He can make them shine. Have a good day! -PB
