Verse of the Day
They will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God their Savior. [Psalm 24:5 – NIV]
Wow! It didn’t take long for Thanksgiving to be over this year; in fact, it was over long before midnight. Many of our favorite brick and mortar stores opened early for their Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving evening while many of you were still spending “family time” together. Yes, there were “door busters” galore with big-screen TVs for rock-bottom prices and the newest Play Station cut to pennies on the dollar. What’s the point of all this mayhem?
It seems like Thanksgiving is an afterthought nowadays; kind of the “forgotten holiday.” It’s really getting squeezed by our secular, commercial society and, tragically, seems to have lost its meaning and purpose. It’s up to us to fight for this day of thanks. God has truly blessed us and this is a day to reflect on what He has done for us, individually and collectively. We should give Him thanks for the many blessings that He has bestowed upon us. Also, as today’s verse points out, this is a great day to give thanks to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ for what He did for us on the cross. Thank you, Jesus!
