Thanksgiving sets our minds of family gatherings…and food! John has a big family, so our Thanksgiving dinners feed over forty people. His cousin has remodeled her house twice to accommodate everyone!
But often, in our increasingly secularized society, we forget that we set aside the fourth Thursday of November to offer thanks to the Lord. “We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing…” But do we really? Are we humble and childlike enough to acknowledge our complete dependence on Him and His kind provision toward us? As you enjoy today’s hymn, sung by sweet children, please remember that Thanksgiving gatherings should honor our Lord Jesus Christ.
