Those who serve God with a sad countenance because they do what is unpleasant to them are not serving Him at all.  They bring the form of homage, but the life is absent.  Our God requires no slaves to grace His throne.  He is the Lord of the empire of love and would have His servants dressed in the livery of joy. – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), from a meditation on Psalm 100.2.
