I’ve said it many times, but in my mind, THIS is the most Christian holiday of the year. I say that because our culture seems to have hijacked Easter with chocolate bunnies and colored eggs, and Christmas has obviously become the most commercialized time of the year – but Thanksgiving is, well, about giving thanks – and that’s Biblical! (See Ephesians 5:20; 1Thessalonians 5:18; and Psalm 100:4, to name just a few)
It’s also more than a day on the calendar; it’s a way of life! (It’s also a great way to counteract all the grumbling we so often do as well.)
My prayer for every person reading this post is that you will take time to do that this week – not only as worship to God, but also to express your gratitude to people in your life that you appreciate. And please don’t forget that thinking is NOT thanking! Your gratitude must be expressed to benefit God or man.
Oh, just one more thing: don’t overdo it at the table this year! The scale will thank you later-
