Everything’s Broken

Broken hearts, broken vows, broken promises, broken laws,

Everything is broken. Nothing works like it’s supposed to.

Washington’s broken. When Senators and Congressmen and women finally find time to show up for work and put together something they think will work. First thing you know it breaks.

Treaties are broken. Chords are broken. Dishes are broken. Rules are broken. Marriages are broken. Families are broken. Records are broken. Parties are divided and broken. Bones are broken. Bottles are broken. Lives are broken. Backs are broken. Homes are broken. Commandments are broken.

It’s what’s wrong with America today. Everything’s broken. Political correctness and tolerance are the standards for carrying on life in our broken, shattered society.

Almighty God has lots to say about all the brokenness we see and experience in our world today.

First of all, God is in charge of everything. Second of all God has a plan and a purpose for everyone He has ever created. And all the brokenness on the planet and hatred and rebellion and discrimination and racism and disobedience will throw God off His game. His plan has been unfolding for man since before the creation of the world. And His plan will continue exactly as He wills it.

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand. Proverbs 19:21

One thought on “Everything’s Broken

  1. “Political correctness and tolerance are the standards for carrying on life in our broken, shattered society.” Never thought of it quite that way, but so true!
