Thanksgiving. You probably think of a big dinner and family running around the table. Loud talk on how the turkey was caught and killed and how you were this close to getting the big one. Yes, I would agree it's a busy time to get everything together. Everyone hustles around to get the big table set. Everyone needs to catch the special game on the television.
There is always one very important thing everyone forgets to do at that moment. In the midst of all that chattiness you always or almost forget to give thanks to God for everything in your life and everyone. Thanksgiving is a time to give the ultimate thanks. It’s literally in the name, thanks for giving. Giving thanks shows others and God that you are thankful and blessed to have whatever you have received.
It’s like a testimony for a holiday. It’s a good thing to give thanks to the Lord even if you feel you are too busy to bring recognition that you enjoy what God has given you. It’s good to give thanks to him even if it isn’t Thanksgiving. Praise him morning and night, don’t stop.
It is good to praise the Lord
and make music to your name, O Most High,
proclaiming your love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night.
What will you give thanks for?
