In every thing give thanks. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift. 2 Corinthians 9:15
As a child, I remember joining hands around our thanksgiving table and taking turns expressing one thing we were thankful for. This practise was intended to focus our attention on the “Giver” rather than our gifts. On a day when many people focus mainly on their temporal blessings, it behooves us to thank God for our many spiritual blessings; but foremost for the indescribable gift of His Son, our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. —E. V.
Whole-hearted thanksgiving to Thee I will bring
In praise of Thy marvellous deeds I will sing;
In Thee I will joy and exultingly cry,
Thy name I will praise, Oh Jehovah, most High.
