40. Principle of Brokenness.
Without breaking through the shell of an egg, the chick cannot be hatched and become a life. Without being dropped and pealed, the wheat seed cannot become a new life and bear lots of fruits. After the bottle of perfume has been broken, its smell fills the whole room and is filled with Jesus’ complement and blessing. After God touched the socket of Jacob's hip so that his hip was wrenched, Jacob got the blessing of “ Israel”. Without breaking the shell of egg, self-pride and obstinacy of the people, belong to the world like the bottle of perfume, and Jesus Christ can neither enter into our hearts nor get the true blessing. Sometimes, God touches the socket of our health, the socket of business, of children, of possession. Through that experience finally we give up useless worldly hopes and meet God and have eternal hope.
