Today is the day of national gratitude, friends. But the practice thanksgiving didn’t originate with America, with the pilgrims that long-ago harvest. Today, I encourage you to remember the words of David, in Psalm 100:
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
May your Thanksgiving Day be full of fellowship and family, a day to recognize the blessings of our Almighty God, and may that attitude of gratitude remain within us throughout this coming year.
