"The true God does not need or desire to be worshiped or to receive offerings, and is most certainly not influenced by flattery or praise."

I would agree. I think of the best of people who've every inhabited the earth, and the traits that they seem to exhibit that raise them above all other people are humility and humanity. They look beyond themselves and toward the greater good. They don't do good deeds because they get praised for them, they do good because it's the right thing to do. If a god is supposed to be better than all things, then I'd think any god would have those sorts of characteristics--an ego that doesn't need to be assuaged, and a wish to do the best for the greater good. Praise wouldn't figure into it--it wouldn't be necessary.
