“The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.”
Psalms 51:17 NLT
True brokenness before God means that our spirit adopt a right attitude, this is humility.
God will never reject anyone that comes before Him repentant and broken; it makes Him feel glad much more than the sacrifice of external things.
To be humble is to recognize our sinfulness before God and that is only through Jesus that we can be forgiven of our sins.
Repentance leads to restoration, and only when our life has been restored is that God will accept the sacrifices and offerings that are presented.
This is the kind of sacrifice that God desires, to stand before God in this way, makes Him accept any sacrifice that we give Him.
