Thanksgiving is not a day set aside for man to indulge in turkey and festivities, but one, like others, to give thanks unto God. It is a day, like all days, to share God's love with one another, and to be a blessing to others. Above all else, thanksgiving is a time to remember what God has done for us."But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, where unto ye desire again to be in bondage? (Galatians 4:9). Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances (Colossians 2:20). God knows us and have saved us, whosoever will accept His Son Jesus Who shed His precious Blood on the Cross, so that we are no longer in bondage to the world's ways. If you are blessed to have a nice dinner party, please remember your elderly neighbors, the disabled, and the less fortunate. More importantly, remember to give praise and thanksgiving to God everyday for what He has done.
"O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever. O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever (Psalm 136:1-6).
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
Be Thankful Unto Him
"Jesus said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself (Luke 10:27).
