brokenness

The people of God are a broken people.

Even in our joy, we are broken. Our joy is a function of our brokenness, because it is only when we are broken that we realize what a great thing it is that God has done for us, and that it is from Him that true joy comes. Not happiness, not momentary pleasure, but true, deep, genuine joy that springs from the heart. That kind of joy requires a brokenness that you just can’t fake.

a broken spirit, and a contrite heart — You will not despise…
