“Oh give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever!” (Psalm 107:1).
As we head into the Thanksgiving season, I’m reminded of all the things I am thankful for: Family, friends, food, and so much more. Above all of these, though, I am thankful for the love of God. Without His love, all of the other things for which I’m thankful I probably would not even have!
“Give thanks to the Lord, for His love endures forever,” is an expression which appears many times throughout the Bible. I feel this places special significance on how important it is that we show thanks for the love of God. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the sales that come the day after Thanksgiving (or even the day of, depending on where you like to do your shopping), but I challenge you: before you get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays, sit back, reflect, and give thanks to God for all He has given you because of His love.
