If you are talented in some way, you could show it off before others and feel good when people praise and admire you. But the deep joy comes from knowing that God has given you this talent and you are grateful and enjoy using this talent to glorify him. Pleasing God is so much more satisfying than pleasing others who merely puff up your ego. The same goes for loving God. Love the Lord in secret and enjoy the secret joy he gives you.
