Thank you (Lk 17:9-17:9)

“Do you thank

The slave

For doing

What he was

Commanded to do?”

 

μὴ ἔχει χάριν τῷ δούλῳ ὅτι ἐποίησεν τὰ διαταχθέντα;

 

Luke uniquely indicated that Jesus asked if they thanked (μὴ ἔχει χάριν) the slave (τῷ δούλῳ) for doing what he was commanded to do (ὅτι ἐποίησεν τὰ διαταχθέντα)?  After all, the slave was only doing his duty, his job.  Should you thank someone for doing what you asked them to do?
