When you are in a formal gathering or a dinner function, the Guests of Honour are always acknowledged by name.

When you have completed a drama, a book, an important task, you would acknowledge those who have played a part in helping you.

Acknowledging someone is crediting someone as having played an important role during the process, the journey, the event.

We are encouraged to

acknowledge GOD

in ALL our ways.
