A Thanksgiving Tradition

In America we set aside the fourth Thursday in November to remember the gratitude of the early settlers to God for His protection and guidance in their new homeland.

Their hearts were thankful because of the rough conditions they had been through leading up to the harvest that year. They wanted to thank God and give Him glory in front of their children and all people who were observing their actions.

In these uncertain economic times, it is important for Christian families to maintain an attitude of thanksgiving for the Lord’s past provision, as well as an outlook of hopeful expectancy in His coming kingdom.

Doing this will glorify God and pass on a tradition of real “Thanksgiving” that will impact future generations.

“But you, O Lord, will rule forever. Your fame will endure to every generation. Let this be recorded for future generations, so that a nation yet to be created will praise the Lord.” (Psalm 102:12-18, NLT)
