As we come upon the Thanksgiving holiday in the coming days, we should all remember and reflect on what Thanksgiving is all about. It’s amazing to me how far we’ve come from the tradition of Thanksgiving and what its original meaning was. Originally Thanksgiving was set up as a day of prayer and thankfulness to God Almighty. Some textbooks today in our own country teach that the original Thanksgiving was about being thankful to the native Indians for teaching us how to make food and how to grow corn, etc. That simply is not true. I’ve included a link below which shares some of the history of Thanksgiving. Although the Pilgrims, the original Separatists, were thankful to the Indians for teaching them those things I’ve mentioned, they knew ultimately where all their blessings came from which is God Almighty, and that is who we need to be thankful for. Let’s talk about those things and praise God and thank Him on this wonderful day, and every day.
God Bless, Tim Marks
