Doing Poetry and Dealing with Pride

One of the fun parts of blogging is encountering other people. Recently Derek Brown visited this site and I followed the link back to his blog. There I found a poem he has written entitled, “Unless the Heart is Broken.” If you have read this blog much, you know that I encourage the use of poetry in various ways. I really enjoyed Derek’s poem as it dealt with the struggle of pride and our need for humility.Here are the opening lines:

Unless the heart is broken
True love to Christ cannot flow
Only a heart that is broken
Can the beauty of Christ know
