Giving Thanks


I wanted to share from the verse I got today.

Deuteronomy 8:10

When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you. 


Thousands of years after this verse was written, in the midst of a hard winter that killed half of their fellow travelers, the Pilgrims who settled America still had a lot to be thankful for. Just before they arrived, a plague had wiped out a hostile tribe that would have killed them. Fifteen years earlier, one member of that tribe had been taken to Europe, was taught English, became a Christian, and came back to America just in time to teach the Pilgrims how to survive. Thanksgiving is a reminder that we have a good God who rescues us in a broken world.

Today's commentary by:
Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, Grace NYC
 



Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, 
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, 
which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your 
minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)

Happy Thanks Giving to you my dear blog friends.
