Hosea 6:6 ” For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings.”

Even today God takes no pleasure in the rituals, ceremonies, and religious acts we perform simply for the sake of doing them.  They are like the constant, reoccurring daily sacrifices done by the Priests in the Temple for the people…and in Isaiah 1:13, God told them to, “Stop bringing meaningless offerings.”  That’s because God is wanting a relationship, not our religious works…He’s desiring a deep connection, not just us sitting in a Church building…He longs to be in a partnership with us, not watching our put on piety.
