“Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin!For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.”
Psalm 51:1-2, 16-17 ESV
God isn’t interested in our religious rituals. He cares about the heart. He desires our holiness and love.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit that treasures Christ above all in this world.
O God, cleanse me from my sins and create in me a clean heart today.
