Broken

Broken pieces actin’ like we ain’t cracked; But we all messed up and can’t no one escape that

    -Lecrae Broken

Where to begin? If that guy would have just cooperated. If that dude hadn’t pulled the trigger. Black lives matter. White lives matter. Blue lives matter. All lives matter.

We live in a world where corruption reigns. There is no Cinderella story for the little guy, because the little guy is screaming injustice and waiting for their handout. And the big guy, what are they doing? They are just complaining about the little guy. 

Our world is broken. Society is broken. What was once a strong nation is now hanging on by a thread. That thread is the hope that we can be better.

The only way we can become better is noticing that there is a problem. Unfortunately, the problem always diverted by pointing fingers. 

When I was a kid, I was told never to point and blame because you always had three fingers pointing right back at you. If only people would use this childish rationale, things would get a whole lot better. 

We are all broken people with flaws. The biggest problem lies within each and every one of us. We think that our opinion is right and there is never anything wrong with us. The problem is always elsewhere. 

The Word says in Romans 2:1, “Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things.”  We aren’t supposed to cast judgement on others, it just condemns ourselves.  

Grace must be given to others because it was first given to us by God. Should we have the opportunity to even be forgiven for the crap that we do? No, but God does it anyway because of grace. 

So what should we do? We should model ourselves after the One who gives grace to us. 

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

2 Corintians 12:9 ESV

We are broken people, living in a broken world, searching for someone to put us back together again. And the only way for that to happen is to experience the fullness of grace through Abba God. 

Today, right now, in this moment, get on your knees and pray. Thank God for the air you breathe, for rolling out of bed, and for guidance in understanding how to exhibit HIS grace in our life. Lecrae said it pretty well:  Ain’t a soul on the planet; That’s better than another; And we all need grace in the face of each other

Thanks for reading. Y’all be safe out there.
