Broken Heart

To have a broken heart is to be humble, contrite, repentant, and meek—that is, receptive to the will of God.

  • I dwell with him that is of a contrite and humble spirit:Isa. 57:15;
  • Christ offered himself for those who have a broken heart and a contrite spirit:2 Ne. 2:7;
  • Offer for sacrifice unto the Lord a broken heart and contrite spirit:3 Ne. 9:20; ( D&C 59:8; )
  • Only those with broken hearts and contrite spirits are received unto baptism:Moro. 6:2;
  • Jesus was crucified for the remission of sins unto the contrite heart:D&C 21:9;
  • He whose spirit is contrite is accepted:D&C 52:15;
  • The Holy Spirit is promised to those who are contrite:D&C 55:3;
  • My Spirit is sent forth to enlighten the humble and contrite:D&C 136:33;
