Happy Thanksgiving Day everyone!
While we should be thankful every day of the year, it is wonderful to have a day within a year set aside for Thanksgiving.
In the United States, Thanksgiving Day would be on November 25, the fourth Thursday of November.
In our country, the Philippines, we don’t have such a day. However, in our church group, we have a tradition to keep it as well in November, usually, the fourth Friday, at the same time that we will have our Sabbath dinner.
Throughout the past few years, Thanksgiving Day has become a more secular rather than a religious celebration. It has become a day about football, partying, food, and getting together with friends and family.
You would be pleasantly surprised if you hear God on Thanksgiving Day.
That’s why, friends, I would like to remind you about the true essence of being thankful.
On Thanksgiving Day and of course, on all days of the year, let us not forget to appreciate the Giver and not just the gift.
Let us remember the true Source of the blessings that we have.
Let us not simply say, “thank you.”
But let us also say, “Thank you, Heavenly Father.”
It’s good to appreciate the blessings, but it is much better to appreciate the Giver.
