When Thanksgiving Day is over
Do we give up giving thanks?
Forget what God has done for us
And rejoin the worldly ranks
Is Thanksgiving just a holiday?
No work and too much food.
Which helps to change our waistline,
But not our attitude?
Or does it serve its purpose
To remind us of what God’s done;
How He gave us life and substance;
How He gave us His own Son.
If you are in Christ, there is always something for which to be thankful. “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him: Rooted and built up in Him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving,” Colossians 2:6-7.
