Christians often refer to the world as broken.
It refers to the imperfect nature of life on Earth.
It does not refer to God breaking our wills as some commentators have suggested.
So what does broken mean?
I believe that because love is the source and purpose of life that broken refers to our broken hearts.
And the world is the vale of the broken-hearted.
But God mends our broken hearts.
If we love God and love our neighbor God returns our love abundantly.
And it is this that makes us whole.
