Sacrifice of Thanksgiving

As I was reading Psalm 116, I was struck by verse 17.

I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.

What exactly is a sacrifice of Thanksgiving?

In the old testament times, there literally was a sacrifice performed called the thanks offering.

Leviticus 7:12-13 
12 If he offer it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour, fried. 13 Besides the cakes, he shall offer for his offering leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings.

However, what does a sacrifice of thanksgiving look like today?

I would love your input on this. Please comment below and share your thoughts.
