11-20-2017         Thanksgiving Without God?

It’s impossible to have a “Thanksgiving” unless there is someone to thank!  The Apostle Paul wrote: “I thank God, whom I serve with a pure conscience, as my forefathers did, as without ceasing I remember you in my prayers night and day” (2 Timothy 1:3 NKJV)(1) God is the only source of blessings to thank, so:  “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, And whose hope is the LORD” (Jeremiah 17:7 NKJV)(2) Having a “pure conscience,” then: “Blessed is that man who makes the LORD his trust, And does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies” (Psalm 40:4 NKJV)(3) Being constantly remembered in prayers, so that: “Blessings are on the head of the righteous, But violence covers the mouth of the wicked” (Proverbs 10:6 NKJV).
