Give thanks, not Turkey!
In front of most newspapers today, it says, "Happy Turkey Day." Most of us make this statement without even batting an eye. But once again, one can not separate practice from belief and when we say, Turkey Day, we make the meal the focus. In the meantime, the real focus becomes lost...giving thanks to God for all of His blessings. So my encouragement is to at the very least tell people Happy Thanksgiving, but even more so, quote Psalm 106: O Give Thanks unto the Lord, for His mercy endures forever. AMEN!
