Our thanksgiving to God
follows a loving action on his part
toward his people.
A thanksgiving sacrifice in the Old Testament
was a sacred meal
during which the participants
ate of the offering made to God.
The one who offers me a sacrifice of thanksgiving,
says the Lord,
is the one who honors me
and to such an upright person
I will show my salvation.
The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
Day pours out the word to day,
and night to night imparts knowledge.
Give thanks to the Lord,
for he is good,
his faithful love endures forever. (Psalm 107)
Happy Turkey Day!
