This kind of thinking still shows up to promote whatever is the religiosity of the day instead of true love for our God. How easily we think that if we just give our God enough of the religious stuff He wants, He will be okay with that. We can then get on with living our own lives the way we want. We forget that the reason for which we were created was to live out of a self-sacrificing, all-consuming covenant love for our God. Our God is saying to us what He said to Israel: “For I delight in loyalty,” covenant love in return for His covenant love for us, “rather than sacrifice,” religious observances and rote ritualism.
