Joel 2:12-13 ” Even now, declares the Lord, return to Me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning. Rend your heart and not your garments.”

Humans are funny…we get caught in something, and we’re sorry…not sorry for what we did…but rather sorry we got caught.  We make a big emotional show…but there’s no humility or remorsefulness involved in our actions.  Psalm 51:17 reminds us of what God really wants from us…not a showy display of  emotions that look good to those who are watching, but lack the brokenness of spirit that comes from a truly regretful heart.  Rather, God desires  from us authenticity, humility, and taking responsibility for our actions.
