What have I done to deserve praise? Nothing, absolutely nothing. I am no one special. I am no better than you or the next person. Alone, I have no talents. Alone, I have no gifts. Only with Jesus can I be somebody, but even that somebody would be a reflection of He who made me. I am nothing, completely nothing without Jesus. I have no talents, no gifts without Jesus. And so the praise that comes my way can really only be meant for Him.
