Let's remember to celebrate the reason for the season.
While those words are often said at Christmastime, it's also appropriate to remember them on Thanksgiving.
More and more, we're starting to see secular culture take over Christian holidays. First it was Christmas, then Easter. Now it's Thanksgiving, which is jokingly referred to as "Turkey Day."
No, Thanksgiving doesn't begin and end with a big feast with a notable roasted bird at the center, although there is nothing wrong with that tradition. But reducing our giving of thanks to the appreciation of roast turkey is absurd.
This day is meant to be started and ended before the throne of God, in prayers of thanks for all the blessings we are unworthy of, yet still have.
I don't mean this to be negative. I simply mean to encourage us not to embrace "Turkey Day." This day is more important than that.
Live gratefully in the presence of God.
