Here in the United States, we are blessed to have Thanksgiving as a national observance, to thank God and honor Him for all He has given us. In reality, as Christians we have something to celebrate in Jesus Christ every day of the year.
The foundation of all our thanksgiving to God is the new covenant. In that covenant is protection, strength and the power of God as a Father to His children. It’s His desire that we remember everything that covenant means.
This year as your family celebrates Thanksgiving Day, think about these scriptures and the importance of giving thanks to God for all He has done for you. Print them out, post them throughout your home, and talk about them during your Thanksgiving celebration. Let them serve as a catalyst to remember just how much you and your family have to be thankful for!
- Psalm 100:1-5: Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth! Worship the Lord with gladness. Come before him, singing with joy. Acknowledge that the Lord is God! He made us, and we are his. We are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.
