What’s your answer to the question, “Why Thanksgiving?” Here are some possible responses:
- Because I love me some turkey & stuffing
- It’s a great excuse to get together family
- It marks the day before the biggest shopping day of the year (some people live for Black Friday sales…I get nervous sweats just thinking about it)
But what about being thankful? Why should we be thankful for more than just the fourth Thursday of every November?
Turn in your Bibles to Psalm 100:5.
Here we find our answer. “Why Thanksgiving?”…well, because God is Good, The Lord has Limitless Love, and The Father is Faithful. Are these reasons enough for you to be thankful? I sure hope so.
As you think back on how good God has been to you over the years…As you ponder the limitless love of the Lord that finds its peak in the sacrifice of His Son on the cross…As you review the ways the Heavenly Father continues to be faithful…how could you not be thankful?
Well, if you can’t be thankful after reviewing these wonderful aspects of the Creator God, maybe you need to take the opportunity to get to know Him, and give your life to Him. Allow Him to forgive your sins, and trust Him with your eternity. You do this, and trust me, you will never be more thankful around the table, and you will always have something to be thankful for!
