Thank is an action word, primarily used with an object. Speaking the word ‘thank’ requires at minimum a verbal communication. In the case above, the object is a pronoun [you], so all together ‘thank you’ isn’t even a formal ascent toward the individual by their name.
Today ‘thank you’ has become routine, a parlor token. Just saying ‘Thank You’ does not relieve indebtedness or obligation. Thank you, far too often, is used as a passport to continue on your way. Thank you has become a point of departure without any true regard for some expense provided for your benefit. In your unconscious, you may say, “I’ve performed the necessary and I’m free to move on.”
When you say ‘Thank You’ you have made an unconscious ascent that you owe someone something. If you feel the need to say thank you, then you should ask yourself, “How may I demonstrate I’m thankful.” Is there action you could or should perform to demonstrate your thanks? How have you demonstrated you are thankful?
Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul
Thank you, Lord, for making me whole
Thank you, Lord, for giving to me
Thy great salvation so rich and free
Are the words above just a path to exit? Are you now at ease to continue your own way without change or demonstration of this thank?
“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
