A broken thing is probably something that we throw away, but often is something we have patience enough to piece back together. A broken bone is something we definitely do not throw away, instead we do the necessary thing for healing. Especially when it comes to a broken heart, we don’t just throw the heart away. We might throw love away and all the feelings that goes with it, but that’s because a broken heart is a condition of internal life and not the physical part of a person. The healing of a broken heart is just as necessary as the healing of a broken bone.
People can be hateful, cruel, and unkind because their heart has been broken. Internal brokenness fills a person with despair, sadness, and the desire to throw goodness in the garbage. A damaged heart feels conflict, they are dealing with harsh circumstances, and life is aggressively rough to them. A shattered heart can have fatal consequences as their life spirals out of control and they have impatience for the process of healing. Many who have a sour attitude towards life are suffering a broken heart. They are condemned as sinners. Healing of a broken heart requires the return of the spiritual fruit in thoughts and emotions. Healing comes through love, kindness, goodwill, peace, faith, joy, perseverance, and self-control.
Christ came to heal the broken heart. Even while we are filled with hate, violence, faithlessness, and fatal attitudes, Christ offers healing. That is what it means when it is said “Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Christ in us loves the broken-hearted even while they are suffering their brokenness. We offer healing through the fruit of God’s spirit. (Romans 5:6-8 is the above quote from the Bible).
