THANKSGIVING

FROM THE DESK OF THE MID-ATLANTIC REGIONAL OVERSEER
Psalms 136: 1ff
“O give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good: for His mercy endureth forever.”

“This Psalm is little else than a repetition of the preceding, with the addition of the burden, "for his mercy endureth forever," at the end of each verse; and it was doubtless composed on the same occasion. It seems evidently to have been a responsive song. The first part of the verse being probably sung by the Levites, and the burden by the people” [e –Sword Commentary].

My wife and I have lived in areas of the world with some of the most impoverished, socially and politically depressed communities; where the language of thanksgiving is seldom spoken or heard. The truth is, the people of those societies have equated thanksgiving with a comparative view or ideology of the Western world, where affluence is paraded all over social media. What a travesty! Failing to understand that “one’s life does not consists in the abundance of his possessions” [St. Luke 12:15].

I am afraid that even in our affluent society, where we have so much to be thankful for; we have lost the true meaning of being thankful. Thanksgiving should be more than merely a day that we celebrate, but a LIFESTYLE for the BELIEVER.

The 136 division of the Psalm points out a litany of things to be thankful for. Notice every stanza ends with “For his mercy endureth forever.” 

As we celebrate this Thanksgiving with families and friends; I implore you; and as an invitation to ALL of us; to return to the 136 division of the psalm and read it thoroughly together as a tribute, to our loving God, whose MERCIES truly “ENDURETH FOREVER.”
 
HAVE A SAFE, ENJOYABLE and HAPPY THANKSGIVING
A prayer from our family to yours
