Broken Things

I am so glad that God fixes broken things, aren't you? I was thinking the other day about how quickly we throw out things that we think are broken and have no more use. Sometimes we find a different purpose for the item, patch it up or reuse it for some other purpose, but for the most part, how often do we just discard things them as broken in our minds. We don't even try to see if the items can be reused or repurposed to do something else.
