I’ve been struck lately by what I hear in the “worldly world”. Almost everyone in America is celebrating Thanksgiving. Christians and nonChristians alike.
But what does it really mean to celebrate Thanksgiving? Is it about eating turkey and pumpkin pie? Is it about having a day off of work?
Lots of people talk about being thankful…and say things like, “What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?”
But what is being thankful if we don’t acknowledge the One we are thankful to?
It brings me great joy to know the One to whom my thanks is directed. When I say I’m thankful…I’m talking about being thankful to GOD…the one who deserves my thanks.
I’m not just happy that I have a great family. I am THANKFUL that God chose to give me the family I have. I’m not just excited that I have a house and health and clothes and shoes. I am THANKFUL that God is the giver of all good things.
To know God. To have a relationship with the One who loved me enough to die for me. To realize the God who is in control my life.
That is what I am thankful for.
