Hosea 6:6  
“I want you to show love, not offer sacrifices. I want you to know me more than I want burnt offerings.” (NLT)

I’m after love that lasts, not more religion.
I want you to know GOD, not go to more prayer meetings.
(The Message)

It sounds like what God wants is less religion and more relationship; fewer rituals and more right lead measures. 

God wants to be known and experienced. He wants us to relate to others the way he relates to us. 

Simple faith like this sounds like we need to add something to make it meaningful. God says meaning comes from a deep and abiding relationship with him, not more meetings. Jesus had a lot to say about this in John 15 and 16. 

Know and experience God. This is the secret of life. And it’s not a secret. It’s what God has been saying all along. 

Less religion, please. 

I will focus on knowing and experiencing God.

Our Father, I want to know you. I do not want to get lost in religious activity that paradoxically leads me away from you. Speak to my heart today with your words of truth and life. Lead my steps where you want met to go. Use the work of my hands to bless and serve others. Here is the day. Show me your way. Amen.
