D&C 50:34 -- On Giving Credit and High Fives

"He that receiveth of God, let him account it of God; and let him rejoice that he is accounted of God worthy to receive."
Doctrine and Covenants 50:34

I like this, maybe in kind of a shallow way, but it seems to be that this is basically asking us to give God credit, and be thankful when he gives us some credit.  It seems very bonding and high-five-ish. :) ... But still an amazing idea.  Even though we don't always acknowledge it, I think most of us crave some validation.  And we love it when someone compliments us for things that we've done.  Just a simple "good job" can make our day, as a child or as an adult.  We want people to like us and think we are cool... to give us some credit. :)  So, when we can do that for God, and when we can be thankful that he does it for us... seems like a good idea.  An idea that helps us move towards Zion.  Today, let's give each other some credit, ... and maybe even a high five. :)  Let's show people that we appreciate them and value their efforts.  And let's give glory (and credit) to God for his amazing blessings, and rejoice when he validates us as well. :)
