Thanksgiving: More Than a Holiday
November 21, 2017
I love Thanksgiving! How many holidays preside over a four-day weekend every year? Often it is a family gathering and the food is great. But best of all – it has a wonderful theme – giving thanks.
Scripture has much to say about thanksgiving. It is a constant topic of Psalms. Paul makes it a guideline:
…in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18.
Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving; Colossians 4:2
It is very difficult to be genuinely and conscientiously thankful – and then turn around into
anxiety, complaint, or negativity. Check out what this CEO learned: Gratitude in the workplace
On the eve of Thanksgiving, join in the conversation:
- What are you thankful for in 2017?
- How have you cultivated an attitude of thankfulness in your life?
- What impact has thankfulness had on you, on your perspective and on others?
