From the Pastor's Desk
Thanksgiving is the aspect of praise that gives thanks to God for what He does for us. David said, “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise” (Psalm 100:4).
Too often we do not realize the blessings of God that is around us. We take for granted the things that we have and do not take notice of them until they are gone. Most of us will live in the moment and never realize that it will not always be like the way it is. Time changes things. During the time that we spend with our families this Thanksgiving, we ought to take the time to look around us and be thankful for the blessings of God. How often do we get up and never take the time to thank God for giving us another day to live? How often do we get in our vehicles and drive to and from work and never take the time to thank God for protecting us as we traveled? How often do we sit at our tables, in our warm houses, with clothes on our backs and shoes on our feet and never take the time to thank God for blessing us with these things he’s provided for us? We take these things for granted.
As we are approaching this Thanksgiving holiday, let us not forget the one to whom our thanks should be given to. The Bible says that every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father above. I encourage you to take time to focus on the good things of God and not on the difficulties.
