Too much religion

It seems odd to have to say so, but too much religion is a bad thing. We can’t get too much of God, can’t get too much faith and obedience, can’t get too much love and worship. But religion — the well-intentioned efforts we make to “get it all together” for God — can very well get in the way of what God is doing for us.
