Ultimately, rebuilding broken worlds can never happen alone.

It is a team effort, and it has to be accomplished in concert with those who can give grace and affirm progress. 

When we purchase something of value that is fragile or delicate, it comes in a carefully designed box and is packed in various forms of Styrofoam to protect it against all but the most crushing blows.  A whole industry is dedicated to such packing and protecting. 

A broken-world person needs the same kind of protection. That is why Paul called for the Corinthians to forgive and also to comfort a broken-world person in their congregation (2 Cor. 2:7).
