Thanksgiving is usually an enjoyable time of sharing a special meal with family and friends. In addition, it should be a reminder to be thankful every day. Ephesians 5:20 says, “Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

After Thanksgiving

by John E. Anderson

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.
