A friend and I were discussing Thanksgiving recently and reached an agreement that it has become the “forgotten holiday.” Sandwiched between Halloween and Christmas, it serves more as a jumping off point for frenzied Christmas shopping. With football thrown in for good measure, of course.
But maybe this forgotten holiday is a missed opportunity. One that could help us shed God’s light.
- Maybe it’s time for us to pause (really PAUSE!) and look at all our blessings.
- Maybe it’s time to look into God’s Word to see what our true blessings are.
- Maybe it’s time to share our blessings with others. And praise God in the process.
After all, Psalm 69:30 says:
I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with Thanksgiving. (KJV)
