Required that Israel give thanks, Psalm 122.4

“The tribes go up there, the tribes of the Lord, where it is required that Israel give thanks to the name of the Lord.”

Psalm 122.4

God gave Israel three feasts to celebrate at the temple in Jerusalem. Thanksgiving was to be done in community.

In moments of intense feeling, people tend to congregate. The church is that place today for our deepest expressions of gratitude.
