Eliezer, or lack thereof
I've heard that point used to show how devoted Eliezer was. He was this big hotshot, making a match for the young master. But he felt so unimportant, that he never even mentions his name. When talking to Rivkah's family, he introduces himself by saying, "I am a servant of Abraham."

In yeshiva they would tell us to learn from Eliezer and not take ourselves so seriously.

Eliezer
Greetings,

I don't believe the parsha mentions Eliezer specifically as the servant.

Shalom,
