Broken and Crushed

The end of Psalm 51 is saying something different today. Saying there is a progression at work: from broken to contrite (crushed) A heart can be broken without necessarily being crushed, without necessarily being humbled much by the experience. But when a broken heart is also crushed it is thoroughly humbled at that time. And when there is a deep humbling it becomes creative and, though people might despise it, God does not despise it, something new can be made. When a piece of bread is broken off and placed in the mouth it is chewed and crushed, and ground up by the teeth until it is converted to a form from which it can nourish the body. Or when a potter resorts to the "contriter" the broken pot is ground up to bits in a kind of crusher-machine so that those bits of material can be reshaped into a new pot. v.17 "The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart - these, O God, you will not despise."



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
