I’ve noticed a slight shift in the way our culture celebrates Thanksgiving. Maybe you’ve noticed it too. The majority of Thanksgiving cards direct their thanks to the person reading the card. We are encouraged via commercials to give thanks to those we love, tell our loved ones how dear they are to us, etc. While this is all well and good, we mustn’t forget the One from whom all blessings flow. God, our Father, is the Creator and sustainer of all things. It doesn’t matter whether you accept it or believe it. It is still true because Truth can be nothing else.
The saying is often said, “What’s true for you isn’t true for me.” Well, if that’s the case then nothing is true at all. How sad to celebrate Thanksgiving without a deep sense of gratitude to the One who made it all possible.
Truth must be true all the time or it it can’t be called Truth.
I enjoy watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday and eating a delicious home-cooked meal with my family and friends, but let’s not allow football and all the modern traditions rob us of the things which really matter.
We’re going to spend tomorrow’s post sharing some practical ways to make sure this holiday is focused on God, Our Father. Enjoy the following worship song before going about the rest of your day.
