In reading Matthew 21 recently, I was struck with this verse about Jesus, the Cornerstone.
"And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder." (Matthew 21:44)
The idea that penetrated my spirit was that of brokenness. If we fall on the stone, we are broken. If the stone falls on us, we are still broken, but to the point of no repair—ground to powder!
Oh, let me fall on the stone! Being broken hurts—broken will, broken pride, broken desires, broken plans—but His plan is full of mercy and grace.
