this sermon crushed me. i recommend listening to it.
“we’re broken people, asking other broken people who need to be fixed, to restore our glory. broken people cannot restore the glory of broken people. broken people cannot make broken people whole. if you look to broken people to heal your brokenness, if you look to broken people to sure-up your sense of self, if you look to broken people for the restoration of your glory, you’re asking glory-deficient, glory-hungry people to satisfy you with the very things that they lack. it is futility to seek this glory from men. it crushes them and leaves us empty.” jr vassar
