Thanksgiving is more than a holiday, more than a date on our calendar. True thanksgiving is a posture of humility, an acknowledgement that all we have comes to us as sheer gift. Rather than simply an excuse to eat turkey, watch football and go shopping, Thanksgiving is an important opportunity to intentionally honor God as the giver of “every good and perfect gift,” (James 1:17). Gratitude is the wellspring of the worshiping heart. That’s why thanksgiving is a part of every corporate worship gathering.
I hope that this season is one of worship for you and yours. Let’s give thanks together.
