"Would you make sure you thank the family for me when you visit them?" my father asked repeatedly.

"I thought they already know how much you appreciate them. They were so kind and treated you as family many years ago," I said.

"But, whenever I think about it, I need to let them know one more time," he added emphatically.

How many times do we have to continue thanking people for the same kind act? Do we need to set a limit?

When Paul wrote to the believers in Rome, he made special mention of a family who risked their own lives to bless him:

Say hello to Priscilla and Aquila, who have worked hand in hand with me in serving Jesus. They once put their lives on the line for me. And I'm not the only one grateful to them. All the non-Jewish gatherings of believers also owe them plenty, to say nothing of the church that meets in their house. (Romans 16:3-4 MSG)

They risked their lives to save him.
This couple was more than Paul's ministry partner; they risked their lives to save him. Paul felt forever grateful to them. He considered all the churches he served equally indebted to Priscilla and Aquila as well. How can you ever thank these kinds of people enough? They are blessings from God.

As we take this special week of the year to give thanks to God for all His goodness, who are the people we need to say thank you one more time?
