Our own Brokenness

"I admire you Christians because when you see someone hungry and thirsty, you see Jesus.
When you see somebody in prison or in hospital you see Jesus.
When you see someone who is strange, a stranger or naked, you see Jesus.

What I don’t understand is that you don’t see Jesus in your own brokenness.
Why are the poor always outside of you?
Can’t you see that they are inside of you; in your hunger and thirst?
That you too are sick; that you too are imprisoned in your own fears and need for honour and power; that you too have strange things inside of you which you don’t understand; that you too are naked?” Carl Jung
