|SCRIPTURE TEXT: “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart .”—Psalm 51:17|
The term ‘sacrifice’ is often associated with something that you give up in order to do God’s will. There is a much deeper meaning to this word. Sacrifice goes right to the core of who you are.
More than anything else, God is concerned with you offering your spirit and your heart to Him. A spirit that is proud and a heart that is hard will never be acceptable to God. When your spirit is broken and you come before God with your pride in pieces, God receives you with great grace and mercy.
When your heart is contrite and you walk tenderly before Him, God assures you of His forgiveness, His cleansing, and His acceptance.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to come before you with a contrite heart. Amen
