Being humble and contrite are characteristics you must strive for, because it is what Yah desires to see.
Shalom, and happy morning to you. If you are a person who is too proud to admit when you’re wrong, or even find it hard to feel remorse for the things you’ve done that go against Yah’s law, he will not regard you as anything of value. As high and mighty as Yah is—even though he is all-powerful, perfect, and all-knowing—he does not force anyone to serve him, nor can he force you to be humble and contrite.
These are characteristics that you must strive to achieve within your walk with Yah, for this is what he desires to see. And while he cannot force you to well up with humility, he does at times create circumstances that allow us to remove pride. What is more, the longer you are immersed in Scripture, with the law of Yah restructuring your frame of mind, your conscience will be fine-tuned, and living out that law will cause you to develop a contrite spirit that is capable of feeling deep remorse for wrongdoing. And, oh what a blessing it is to develop these qualities, for having them will cause Yah to fully regard you.
1 Thus says Yah: Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me, and what is the place of my rest? 2 All these things my hand has made, and so all these things came to be, declares Yah. But this is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word.
—Isaiah 66:1 – 2
