Luke 17:16 He prostrated himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan.

I have discovered that I enjoy foreign languages. Not that I can speak more than a phrase or two in any but English. But the phrase that I first seek to learn when I meet someone from another country is “Thank you.”

Thank you is the heart of worship. Thanking another person is to recognize God’s presence in that person. I hope that by thanking someone in their native tongue, I might connect with them and they might see God through me.
