Thanking Servants

If someone sends a servant to do something for us and we wish to show our appreciation, we either thank the master directly or tell the servant to thank the master for us.  If we compliment the servant, it is for serving his master well.  The servant should look only to his master for praise.  So too, each of us should look only to God for praise.

Paul often said, "I thank God for you and what you mean to me."
