Read an Excerpt


I believe one of the reasons many believers are afraid of the idea of brokenness is that they have misconceptions about what brokenness really means. As is true in so many other areas, our idea of brokenness and God's idea of brokenness are usually quite different. For example, some people think of brokenness as always being sad or gloomy. Others think of brokenness as being morbidly introspective: "Oh, woe is me! I've confessed every sin I can possibly think of; but surely there must be something I've missed. Oh, what a worm I am!" False humility and morbid introspection are, in fact, the opposite of brokenness, as they reveal a preoccupation with self, rather than Christ. So what is true brokenness' Someone has said that brokenness, like a fragrance, is easier to detect than to define.
