A Medical Missionary Learns How One Group of People in India say, "Thank You"

A medical missionary in India had found a way to heal people who were going blind. He said that once he’d done this operation on the local people they never said, "Thank you," because that phrase was not in their dialect. Instead, they spoke a word that meant, "I will tell your name."

Wherever they went, they would tell the name of the missionary who had cured their blindness. They had received something so wonderful that they eagerly proclaimed it.

When you and I give thanks we are “telling God’s Name”.

We are declaring that we believe in a God who actively works in our lives.
