A broken spirit: a broken and contrite heart

"The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a conttrite hear, O God, Thou wilt not despise." Psalm 51:17 "A legal religion can never lead souls to Christ; for it is a loveless, Christless religion. Fasting or prayer that is actuated by a self-justifying spirit is an abomination in the sight of God ..." Desire of Ages, page 280
