“Offer to God the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and pay your vows to the Most High.” Psalm 50:14
Is this verse saying it is a sacrifice to give thanksgiving to God? The previous verses state that God doesn’t want animal sacrifices to honor Him, He wants our thanksgiving. Don’t we want to be appreciated by someone saying thank you to us? Offer thanksgiving to God as your sacrifice to honor Him.
The next verse states, “call on Me in the day of trouble, I will deliver you, and you shall honor and glorify Me.” Our sacrifice is putting God in control of our lives and put ourselves on the alter to Him.
