Praise vs. Thanksgiving

I had an interesting question at Bible study last week that has me thinking. What is the difference between praise and thanksgiving?

This is the week of Thanksgiving. Is it a week of praise as well? Can we separate the two?

As I explore this, I'd appreciate your thoughts on this topic.

I am exploring this issue as well. I read a comment from an author who said that "praise concerns who God is" while "thanksgiving concerns what God has done".

While I like that distinction, I am researching it further to see if it holds up biblically.

I have seen similar distinctions.
