The Amazing Power of a Broken Heart | 21 January 2023

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! A broken heart sounds like something to avoid, but it’s actually an eternal attribute of godliness.

Scripture

And ye shall offer for a sacrifice unto me a broken heart and a contrite spirit. And whoso cometh unto me with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, him will I baptize with fire and with the Holy Ghost.3 Nephi 9:20

Quote

Christ’s example teaches us that a broken heart is an eternal attribute of godliness. When our hearts are broken, we are completely open to the Spirit of God and recognize our dependence on Him for all that we have and all that we are. The sacrifice so entailed is a sacrifice of pride in all its forms. Like malleable clay in the hands of a skilled potter, the brokenhearted can be molded and shaped in the hands of the Master.Bruce D. Porter
