A Broken Cup

A few years ago, when I discover that the handle to one of my cups is broken, I consider throwing the cup away. 


But just before doing so, the cup shouts, “Wait! Wait! Wait! Wait a minute! . . . My handle may be broken! But before you throw me away, I want you to understand that I can still do what I’ve been created to do! I can still do what I’ve been designed to do!”


In that moment I realized that despite the broken handle, the cup was still functional. The cup still had value. I could still use the cup. I could still drink from the cup.


Therefore, instead of throwing the cup away, I decided to keep the cup.


Likewise, despite your brokenness, despite your flaws, despite your failures, God still finds value in you.
