A Heart that Pleases God

The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.

(Psalm 51:17 NLT)

Our heart says a lot about us. Jesus said, “A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart” (Luke 6:45). The words in Psalm 51:17 reveal a penitent heart. David says, “The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.” God looks with favour on the heart that’s humbled before Him. It pleases Him more than anything you have to offer. When your heart is broken by trouble or sin, look to God and expect His mercy.

God doesn’t despise a broken and contrite heart.
