JNANA VS BHAKTI

When someone wishes for Jnana, they want it out of fear of the society, or the fear of the ‘Samsara’ (the vicious cycle of births and deaths).
However, when we see the case of great ‘bhaktas’ (devotees), they revel in the love for God and sing His praises, right from their childhood. This, they do out of unconditional love for God, and not driven by any fear or reason.
The stimulus for Jnana is usually fear, while the stimulus for Bhakti is unconditional love. Is not Bhakti greater than Jnana?
