In today's readings at Mass, Paul pointed out that observing the law counts for nothing, but only faith through love; and Christ said to the Pharisees that observing the prescribed washing before meal does not cleanse the inside. This lead me to think that we perform many deeds by going through the motion just because it's the practice, custom, or tradition. If we're given free choice, we probably wouldn't want to do any of them. What's lacking is love. So doing them all with love for God, then they will become meaningful.
