A number of people around me raise chickens and give away their eggs. Karen and I are blessed to be recipients of such generosity. I have found that an egg that is never broken only rots with-in. The value of an egg is when it is broken. An omelet, hard boiled, scrambled or a new born chick all come from broken eggs.
Psalm 51:17 (NIV)
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
