What would Jesus do?

Authory Tom Taylor has written a book called Paradoxy. He writes:

"Jesus frequently hung out with the unwanted, the immobile, the irreverent and the interracial. Jesus seemed to avoid the bueaucratic, the rigid, the cold and hard hearted, the arrogant and the duplicitous. In essence, Jesus befriended those were spiritually, often physically and emotionally broken and who were more than willing to admit it and ask for help."

Brokenness. Admitting it. Asking for help.

Brokenness. Admitting it. Asking for help.

We're at our best, I believe, when we're in touch with our brokenness and willling to admit that we need the touch of Jesus to heal us.

I think I sometimes believe that I'm OK, that I don't need the Master's touch. That's when I get into trouble.

What do you think?

Since I reached out and admitted my brokenness 30 months ago in the trial of my life, I have received so much love and some very committed to me. That is the embracement of Christ. When His people love genuinely with compassion and w/o judgment, oh, the healing and love over flows. So much so that I am able to healthily share the compassion and love I have to you all. Loves Embrace.

Being broken is a good way to remain humble and very close to Jesus.
