God prefers that our hearts be right with Him & that we want to follow Him & love Him rather than us performing religious rituals in futile efforts to please Him. God does not desire religious works. He wants a personal relationship with each of us. He wants us to want Him & His grace & forgiveness. We can't earn or deserve salvation & love from God based on what we do (or do not do). It's a all a gift. Read Psalm 51:16-17 for more help.

It says that as far as personal, optional sacrifice is concerned (unlike public ceremony or compulsory ones), specifically those made to thank God or as celebration, God would prefer over them justice and fairness (specifically in the court system - civil and criminal). I mean, this is the explicit text, how come so many get it so fundamentally wrong?!?
