Blessing in Response to Blessing

The whole creation depends on food.  But the unique position of man in the universe is that he alone is to bless God for the food and the life he receives from Him.  He alone is to respond to God’s blessing with his blessing.

—Alexander Schmemann, For the Life of the World, 14-15
