Family, food and fellowship are what comes to mind when we consider Thanksgiving. It is a hallowed day.
God understands feasts, since He instituted a host of them in the Old Testament. He loves us and wants us to enjoy ourselves and the blessings He has given us.
However, we must resist the danger of creating an atmosphere of high stress, short-tempers and well-established complaints. Peace should reign. There is nothing we can complain or fight about that that is more important than our relationships.
Let’s all remember the bigger picture of what we have been given and that we are always His children. Restrain your fleshly weaknesses and allow joy and love to fill your heart.
Thanksgiving is not about our perfection or preeminence. It is about God and the fruits He has given us, including those of the.Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). Let us never lose our focus on what is truly important and it isn’t us!
