It's fairly humbling to think that God views the earth as His footstool (Isaiah 66:1). So often we're caught up in trying to impress God or in proving our worthiness that we forget how far above us He truly is. Ultimately, though, the one to whom God looks only needs to do two simple things: be humble and contrite in spirit AND tremble at His word. The humble and contrite person recognizes his or her place in the world and accepts that God is in control. Such a person carries with him remorse for sins committed. The additional quality required to be looked upon by God, according to the book of Isaiah, is to tremble at God's word (essentially to fear God). Ironically, these qualities are not altogether different from the most important commandment that Jesus spoke of: "love the Lord your God." A good self-test is to see if these two qualities are characteristic of you.
