We give thanks because we have everything and everything is what we want. But as Christians let's not only rejoice over the momentary prosperity of our respective nations, a brief glance at history teaches us that nation’s rise and fall very quickly. No, as Christians let us focus our thanksgiving on this day and every other day on our Lord Jesus Christ:
Let us contemplate His word and His promise never to abandon us, and one day return to bring us to heaven with Him.
Let us celebrate through praise and thankful prayer, the many physical and spiritual blessings that He provides each day for our joy.
Let us make Jesus the line and circle around our lives so that having and knowing the Lord becomes the very substance of what it means to be satisfied and filled, regardless of what we possess materially.
