It is expected . . .

Luke 17:7–10 NASB95

“Which of you, having a slave plowing or tending sheep, will say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come immediately and sit down to eat’? “But will he not say to him, ‘Prepare something for me to eat, and properly clothe yourself and serve me while I eat and drink; and afterward you may eat and drink’? “He does not thank the slave because he did the things which were commanded, does he? “So you too, when you do all the things which are commanded you, say, ‘We are unworthy slaves; we have done only that which we ought to have done.’ ”

I have asked Jesus to work through me to do his will. Then, after he has done this, I get proud because I think I have done something good and I am worthy of praise. The above verses ground me to reality: I do not deserve thanks and praise but rather Jesus does. And after Jesus gets the credit for what he has done, and I realize that my role was only to follow his orders and do what I ought to do and that I do not deserve praise, then I can properly see myself and my role.

Treating others with the love of Jesus is the bare minimum, it is expected.
