Imagine Through Repentance
Today’s Scripture: “My sacri ce, 0 God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.” - Psalm 51:17
Today’s Thought: When an item breaks, we throw it away. A weak or broken item is no longer useful to us. Therefore, it is challenging for us to understand this biblical concept of brokenness. In the Bible, we learn about a woman who bought a costly perfume to show her love for Jesus. The perfume was contained in an alabaster box that she broke open to anoint Jesus. After the alabaster box was broken, a lovely fragrance must have lled the room. What beautiful fragrance will ll our lives and our world if we humbly go to Jesus, broken with sadness over our sin?
Today’s Prayer: Dear God, I never want pride to keep me from repenting and from being broken before you! As I humble myself before your perfect holiness, I am ashamed of my sinfulness. Please make something beautiful out of my brokeness.
