In addition, we know that Thanksgiving is not just a “day,” but it’s a mindset! The Bible shares many scriptures on the importance of being thankful, giving thanks, and even entering times of worship WITH thanksgiving! We grumble and complain without thought, but we must think to give thanks. Truly we have much to thank God for, but to be thankful, we must do it willingly.
We should thank Him that our minds are not unbalanced. We should thank Him for the light and blessing of another day. Thank Him for past mercies, present comforts and future prospects, food, with the appetite to eat, and the power to digest it, clothes to wear, the Church, and the covering of sin and uncleanliness, the glorious possibilities that are before us, and most of all the sweet invitation He gives us to “Come!”. Psalm 100:4 (NKJV) 4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
Happy Thanksgiving to each of you!
