The story is a beautiful picture of how Maggie loves and cares for the broken ones, as Christ does. It's a song that convicts and makes me wonder how am I reaching out to the broken ones around me.
This is the last chorus of the song:
"Love the broken ones, the ones that need a little patchin' up
See the diamond in the rough and make it shine like new
It really doesn't take that much, a willing heart and a tender touch
If everybody loved like He does, there'd be a lot less broken ones."
We live in a world full of hurting people, physically and emotionally. I'm sure I would be surprised to know some of the stories of those who live around me. We don't have to go far to find broken people. Are we loving the broken ones around us? Christ loved us in our brokenness. He reached out to those who were seen as probably the "most broken" people.
It doesn't take much, if we are willing to step out, get out of our comfort zones and start helping people. If everybody loved like He does, there would be a lot less broken ones. Starting today, may there be a lot less broken ones.
