"Sacrifices pleasing to God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, thou shalt not despise it, O God." 

Psalm 51:17 

THOUGHT: 'Broken spirit is meekness, which brings us to the condition and attitude of receiving instruction and correction. Jesus invites us to take His yoke upon us and learn from Him because He is meek and lowly in heart (Matthew 11:29). The yoke is the yoke that joins two oxen, usually the less experienced one to the more experienced one, to learn how to proceed. Without meekness nothing is learned, and you and I need to learn from Jesus how to live life in the Spirit. May our hearts be poured out before the Lord so that we can do His will, and certainly the Lord will not despise us and will never abandon us. 

Prayer: Dear Father, break our lives, our hearts, daily so that we can be close to you, so that we can be each day more sensitive to your voice, have a closer contact with you, help my brother and mine confirm that you are now reading this devotional and that they can connect to your kingdom, because you knock the door and open the Lord enters and makes a home, in the name of Jesus. I pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
