a contrite and humble spirit

Isaiah 57

v15

For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name [is] Holy; I dwell in the high and holy [place], with him also [that is] of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

The solution to situations of strife is to have a contrite and humble spirit. Instead of setting ourselves up and seeking good things for ourselves, we should consider other people to be more important than ourselves.

v17

For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him: I hid me, and was wroth, and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart.

We should also make sure we aren't covetous.
