I think this statement sums up the point of worship. Although I think it is important in forming relationship with the Divine that we have expressions of worship that we enjoy, the most important thing is does God enjoy it. When I was in the Eastern Orthodox church I once heard my Bishop Mar Enoch make the statement, “We often ask one another, how was church? Did you enjoy the service or the liturgy? Our opinion of the service does not matter. We need to be asking God if He enjoyed the service.”
