Today is the big day! Thanksgiving day: one of my favorite days of the year. A day we can stop and reflect on the blessings we’ve received throughout the year. I hope your table looks like this one, full and surrounded with loving friends and family.
Every year at Thanksgiving time, I re-read psalms 100. It is a perfect description of what our posture in this world should be today, and every day.
A psalm. For giving grateful praise.
1 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
