Devotional spirituality and practices

If your religion or spirituality centers around devotion or includes devotional sentiments and actions, what do you personally get out of it, and why are you drawn to it?  I know that for many devotion can be included as a gift to get something in return.  So what do you get from it?

If you have a more metaphorical approach to the gods or spirits and nevertheless include a devotional aspect in your path, how does that work for you?

I’d like to perhaps come back and respond later since this has been on my mind today.
