The Thanksgiving holiday is over and most of us are having leftovers until the food is gone. While we enjoy family and friends during such days, the significance of giving thanks to God every day is far more important than any earthly joy we receive from such a one-day event.
“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God” (1 John 3:1).
The first thing in the morning and the last thing at night—and often in between—should be devoted to giving thanks to God for His gift of every spiritual blessing through His Son. In Christ we have Spiritual food upon which we can feast day after day and never consume it all.
His Word never becomes stale, nor is it a “leftover,” but is God’s complete food for His children. Eat heartily and drink deeply with thanksgiving to God every day!
