Remembering God at Thanksgiving

Posted by: | Comments (1)

happy thanksgivingHas the giving of thanks disappeared from your Thanksgiving Day?

Thanksgiving has been a national holiday in America since 1863 when Abraham Lincoln set the day aside as a day of prayer and thanksgiving.  In our society today, the idea of a Thanksgiving holiday brings thoughts of food, time off work, shopping, ballgames, family get-togethers and more. Yet I wonder how often this day will lead us to times of true giving of thanks and prayer?

Recently I was meditating on Psalm 78 and paused at the invitation to share God’s goodness with our families in verses 4-5 “…telling to the generation to come the praises of the LORD and His strength and His wonderful works that He has done…. He commanded our fathers that they should make them known to their children that the generation to come might know them, The children who would be born, that they may arise and declare them to their children, that they may set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God but keep His commandments.”
