Quote 11

God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume. . . .It is Peter, weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power than ever.

Vance Havner, The Still Water (Quoted in Guideposts, Oct. 1981, p. 5)
