Giving Thanks For The Right Reasons

Thanksgiving! What do you think about when you hear those words? Football? Food? Parade? Shopping? I think about those things, too. But is that really what we should be thinking off?

Now, I don’t think about Jesus when I think of Thanksgiving. I should, though. One of the things I think about is how the day after Thanksgiving we decorate for, wait for it, Christmas. I am also a fan of the food. But I really should be giving thanks to GOD! I mean, without Him, would we even have Thanksgiving?
So I’m not saying that on Thursday you should avoid the food and just pray all day. But you should give thanks to Him more then just the second before you eat when your thoughts are on turkey or pie.
