Tomorrow many people will sit down with family and friends and share in the gifts of food, laughter and conversation.  Some are serving our country, working in public service, or it’s just their regularly scheduled shift and will have a warmed up plate at home.

Whatever and wherever you find yourself, the gift (meaning) of thanksgiving is much more than pumpkin pie and turkey.  The word “thanksgiving” is used 29 times in the bible, and over 156 times in conjunction with other words: “thankful” “thankfulness,” etc.

Psalm 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Psalm 26:7 That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
2 Corinthians 4:15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

May this prayer be yours:
