The brief: Define Piety.

The Google

Definitions of Pious/Piety on the Web:

devout: devoutly religious; "a god-fearing and law-abiding people" H.L.Mencken

Marked by or showing reverence and devotion

righteousness by virtue of being pious

Piety is a desire and willingness to perform religious duties. It is a
traditional virtue because religion is the only known way to win the favor or
forgiveness of deities, that is, to "propitiate" them.

Reverence toward God or the gods; religious devoutness

I'm in the mood for a side order of theological exposition. Serve it up readers. How does one revere God. Define Piety.

Profane. Profound. What's your poison?
