Give thanks to the Lord!

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” – Psalm 107:1

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s no accident that we’re commanded many, many times in the Bible to “give thanks.” God knows us well. He understands our tendency to forget His goodness, forget His blessings, and forget how much we have to be thankful for!

Today, families all across the United States will gather together to celebrate with a huge feast. Because so much time and energy are spent on planning, preparation, and eating, it’s easy to get distracted. However, the true focus of this holiday is not food. It’s not the turkey, the sweet potatoes, or the pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving is about the Lord. It’s a day to focus on Him.

Let’s be sure to thank the Lord repeatedly throughout the day, not just in our hearts but with our lips.

Thank you, God! We give thanks to you today and always, for you are good!
