Not to mention the seemingly bigger holiday which follows it ... Black Friday!!
... Hundreds of thousands shopping from midnight-to-midnight looking (or fighting) for the best stuff ... the best deals ... the best buy!
But we should all take a moment to consider what this holiday should truly symbolize ... here are a few definitions of the meaning of Thanksgiving from the Unabridged Dictionary:
1. The act of giving thanks; Grateful acknowledgment of benefits of favors, especially to God.
2. An expression of thanks, especially to God.
3. A prayer expressing gratitude.
4.. A day set apart for giving thanks to God.
And from 2 Corinthians 9:8 and 9:11 ...
"And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work;
Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causes through us thanksgiving to God."
Let's all truly give God our thanks-giving, this year and everyday we are blessed with!
