Thanksgiving! What a great time of the year! It is a time when we, as a nation, actually incorporate a biblical principle into our daily lives.
Thanksgiving is a special time of acknowledging the blessings of God in our lives and giving God thanks for all things. When the pilgrims came together to give thanks to God on that first Thanksgiving it set in motion a special day for all of us to pause and consider the goodness of God in our lives and remember from whom all blessings flow. We are instructed by the scriptures to offer thanksgiving unto God!
The Apostle Paul said in I Thessalonians 5:18, "in every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God concerning you."
