Worship Is the Most Selfless Emotion

Worship is the submission of all our nature to God. It is the quickening of the conscience by His holiness; the nourishment of mind with truth; the purifying of imagination by His beauty; the opening of the heart to His love; the surrender of will to His purpose — all this gathered up in adoration, the most selfless emotion of which our nature is capable.

William Temple (1881-1944)
