Give humans some credit

Just about every heartwarming story I read about people helping people, animals, or just plain helping, there’s someone in the background saying “Praise God.” Or “God is great.” Or similar.

I understand the theological position. But when observers praise God instead of people, they are not only passing over the human effort. They are attention-grabbing with their own faith.

Credit God with your own victories if you wish, but let other human heroes get their deserved accolades.
