A shattered window represents your frailty and vulnerability. God opened my eyes to the fact that His purposes extend far beyond what my flawed eyes can perceive during my misery. He is always looking on top of the mountain for His children, but we hide from Him because of our sin.
The Bible says that although God is all-powerful, we live in an evil world where pain and suffering are part of life. However, through Christ's sacrifice, salvation is available to all who will have it.
Broken glass is common in Scripture and represents destruction. When Jesus said, "They will pick you out of handfuls even as wheat," He was telling His disciples that they would be persecuted by the government and society around them (Matthew 10:22). This would include being taken away from family members, losing friends, and having their property stolen. As Christians, we are called to share our faith with others and lead them to salvation; however, this can cause us to suffer backlash from people who reject Jesus.
When Jesus returned to Jerusalem for the first time since His death and resurrection, he told His followers that not one stone would be left upon another without Him (John 11:51). Although Jesus was talking about the temple, these words apply to all forms of destruction in our lives.
In spiritual terms, however, a shattered glass frequently signifies weakness, brittleness, fragility, and the ability to be quickly injured. Broken glass signifies not simply broken objects, but also broken relationships. It represents things that are bad and cannot be fixed. A broken object is discarded because it can't be used anymore. A broken relationship is one that has been terminated.
In English folklore, broken mirrors are associated with doomed marriages. As long as both parties wish their marriage to last, then it will; but once one of them decides that the marriage is done, then it is finished. The mirror becomes broken even though the glass remains intact.
The association between mirrors and marriage comes from the fact that when someone wants to show that they are committed to something, they will promise it before everyone else can stop them. Mirrors are very reflective materials, so someone who wants to commit themselves fully to you would first of all want to know that you want them too. They would then promise you that nothing and no one else will ever come between them and you. If they break this promise, then they have shown that they are not really committed to you and that you should find another partner instead.
Mirror, mirror on the wall... Who's the fairest of them all?
Broken mirrors are a common theme in fairy tales.
Glass is a metaphor of life's delicate difficulties. Spirituality is also associated with the symbol. In certain cultures, breaking glass is considered a good omen. It denotes the end of difficult circumstances and horrible nightmares. It is time to appreciate what you have in life. Use caution not to injure yourself when viewing this sign.
Shattered glass In a strange twist, smashing a glass by accident is considered lucky. It reflects the notion that evil is departing and that good fortune is on its way. The loudness and turmoil of the broken glass is thought to frighten bad spirits and cause them to flee.
Lucky breaks happen more often than you might think. Whether it's through violence or an accident, broken glass has been known to bring good luck. There are many stories out there about how breaking glass can save lives. One example comes from China where people who break glass to prevent accidents from happening are given priority when it comes to receiving medical attention. The idea is that shattered glass is evidence that an accident has happened, so officials will go to any length to find survivors.
In Japan, it is believed that if you see someone without their glasses, you should give them your spare pair. This idea comes from the belief that missing your eye sight is like losing your vision completely - which would be impossible if you were wearing lenses. If you don't have any glasses, then you're supposed to feel lucky and keep the gift of seeing other people's misfortune.
In the Western world, we often use money to show gratitude. If you receive lucky breaks, it's polite to return the favor by not asking for money. Otherwise, you could be accused of taking advantage of others' misfortunes.
