“What Is True Devotion?”

“True devotion is that disposition of heart that moves it to perform with tender affection and burning fervor all its services to God. The bowing of the knees, the prostrating of the body on the ground, the lifting of the eyes heavenward, the wringing of the hands, and the pious sighs and groans are not proof of a devoted heart. In all acts of true devotion there is a high esteem, a profound respect, a holy adoration for the Divine Majesty; there is a humble acknowledgment of the soul’s dependence and duty; there is an intense desire to lavish the heart’s love upon Jesus by doing all things for His sake.” ~ Charles Orr
