“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for His mercy is everlasting” (Psalm 107:1).
My only hesitancy in writing a Thanksgiving day devotional about being thankful is the risk of perpetuating the notion that giving thanks is limited to an annual observation. It’s akin to the “hype” surrounding Easter Sunday when, in fact, the church has a 2000 year history of gathering EVERY Sunday for the purpose of worship and celebrating the resurrection. In a world that has never failed to prove itself as unpredictable, uncertain, and unreliable, only those trusting in the everlasting mercies of God will live lives characterized by an unceasing spirit of thanksgiving, and display with rhythmic consistency gathering together with God’s people to commemorate the resurrection. Never cease giving thanks, and I’ll see you Sunday.
