A Day of Thanksgiving

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Colossians 3:15

The idea of setting aside a particular day for giving thanks has been around for a long time, and it’s been around for a long time for a good reason.  As we know, we should be thankful all of the time about every thing.  But it’s also nice to take a day to think about the things for which we are thankful.  That is what we do today.  So, as you spend time with loved ones, probably eating too much and enjoying good fellowship, spend some time thinking about the One who has made all of that possible.  We should spend a little time today thanking the Lord for giving us so much and doing so much for us.  What am I thankful for?  A short list:

My salvation through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

My family and friends.

A perfect Bible.

My dogs (chocolate labs – Duke and Brutus)

The mercy and grace of God.

Food and football.

Did I mention my salvation?  If I were to lose everything else on the list, I can still thank God for saving my sinful soul.  What a wonderful Saviour and what a wonderful object of thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving!
