1 Thes. 5:18
In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus
Dear friends, brothers and sisters!
Please accept my heartfelt Thanksgiving Greetings as we celebrate this wonderful holiday! I am happy to live in America, where Thanksgiving Day is celebrated annually as a national holiday. For every believer, every day should be Thanksgiving Day, and a grateful heart must become our character. Someone once said that only a good person is capable of appreciating the good that you have done for him; the better the person, the more thankful he is.
My dear friends, on this Thanksgiving Day, as we gather with our families, let us set aside time to thank God for His blessings and gifts. The Holy Scriptures tell us what God through Moses had commanded in Deuteronomy 8:10: “When you have eaten and are satisfied, you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which He has given you”. “he who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me” (Psalm 50:23).
Let us follow the advice of the author of Hebrews: “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise – the fruit of lips that openly profess His name” (Heb. 13:15).
