Like the rest of us, the Lord likes a little appreciation and a simple thank you will do.
Sadly, it possible to bypass the whole god-thing even when we know better. The Bible says, “They knew God but did not praise and thank him for being God. Instead, their thoughts were total nonsense, and their misguided minds were plunged into darkness.” (Romans 1:21, GW)
Appreciation and thanksgiving keeps our heads straight and our hearts tender.
