A few weeks ago, it was halloween, and the Christmas decorations were already up for sale at Walgreens. A few less weeks ago, Thanksgiving decorations were already on clearance at Wal-Mart. Christmas music is playing earlier and earlier ever single year, and the market machine is trampling our Day of Thanks in an attempt to make the biggest buck it can on Christmas.
Let’s face it, Thanksgiving is one of the few national holidays left that can be purely attributed to Christian morals and ideals. It is a day about giving thanks to God for the bounty He has blessed us with. And as such, society wants nothing more than to sweep it under the rug.
Do not let this happen. Remember what the meaning of Thanksgiving is. Remember everything you have to be Thankful for. The nation in which you live, the bounty with which you are blessed, the family you have, the house you live in, and the Salvation the Lord Jesus Christ gives freely. And with joy in your heart, and a smile on your face, look someone in the eye and say “Happy Thanksgiving!”
Here is a Bible tract that shows the real meaning of Thanksgiving, and society’s attempt to make it dissapear.
