"...The people of our times have become masters of illusion, experts at covering pain, abusers of medication, slaves to financial debt, followers of fads, and partakers of loneliness. Because we won't realize that the only solution for being broken is...brokenness. By brokenness, I mean the acknowledgment of it, the full and unflinching acceptance that we are bankrupt, poor in spirit, and have nothing to offer. In our culture, that's a hard sell...Brokenness is not trending on Twitter...It is, however, the one hope Jesus holds out for us, the inside-out, upside-down way that is somehow the only path that ultimately is right side up. Embrace the paradox: brokenness is the way to wholeness."
