2 Points, or Not 2 Points?

I've played a few more test games, and I'm a bit at a loss.  I need your help.

The question is all about the rule that starts each turn with 2 free blessing points, before you have to sacrifice any cards.  Here's some of my thoughts and experiences.

As I've been playing, I've tried it both with and without the points.  I've noticed that when I play games with the rule in place, there's less sacrificing of cards.  That's not really a problem, I guess, but I feel like it messes with the economy of the cards, and the card flow of the game.

But on the other hand, without it, people tend to hold their cards, and fewer cards actually get played , which really messes with the flow.  Also, there's fewer extra points available, so it's not so often that I use the "Quote It" rule.

So, what's your experience been?  How does it feel?
