Psalm 51:15-17. O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Thought for the Day: The Heart Not Rituals Matters To God
Reflection for the Day: The Spirit And Intent Of The Behavior Is Measured By God
Within the church world today much is done simply because that is "what you are suppose to do". The behavior is proper but the heart is not. The Lord responds to those with a broken spirit and a contrite heart. He measures the intent of the behavior not simply what is done.
As you come before the Lord, seeking His blessings, the words you say are not what concerns God. It is your heart. Humble yourself before the Lord, recognizing your frailty and His loving power. Be assured He will not reject you, as you come with a broken spirit and a contrite heart.
