Dad has money, but he never buys new stuff if he can repair the old. 

·        I watched him sit in the living room one entire evening and re-stitch the heel of his boots to the leather.
·        He fixed the dishwasher.
·        He always did repairs on our cars.
·        He patched the hole in his tent.
·        He fixed the lawn mower.
·        He took apart a broken camera and got it working again. 

It takes so much time and effort to fix something instead of tossing it and buying a new one.  Investigation to figure out the problem.  Taking it apart piece by piece.  Cleaning.  Finding the right parts -sometimes fabricating new parts.  Fixing.  Putting it back together piece by piece.  It requires determination and know-how. 

Jesus said, “The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor.”  (Matthew 11:5) 

Jesus fixes broken people. 

“…he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted...”  (Isaiah 61:1) 

What is broken in your life?  All you need is a good Repairman.
