Why do people often seem to give credit to their God instead of themselves or those directly deserved of the credit?
For example, the food you eat likely came from a farm or store, why not thank the farmers or the store owners and employees instead?
Or another example, if a student does well on a test and exclaims "thank God I got did well on that test," they are depriving themself of credit they earned. By doing so, their confidence could ultimately suffer. They took the initiative to study for the test instead of watching TV. They paid attention in class and took notes. And ultimately, they took the test and answered the questions correctly.
Why don't people seem to give their self or those involved credit more often?
