Each day during Lent, I will be highlighting a Lenten Word (or phrase) of the Day from the readings of the day. I encourage you to reflect on this word or phrase throughout the day and incorporate it in your daily prayer.
A humble heart you will not spurn… (Psalm 51:19)
HUMBLE HEART: For your personal reflection, I offer these words taken from today’s Responsorial Psalm.
Sometimes our heart becomes hard with pride and the illusion that we are in control. Those with a humble heart realize they are not perfect; they accept their brokenness, their humanity. They acknowledge they’ve made mistakes and desire to change. They know they need God – his grace, mercy, and guidance. Those with a humble heart surrender themselves.
Those are the hearts God desires for us.
