From Jay Younts on the Shepherd Press Blog: “in less than two weeks it
will be Thanksgiving Day once again. That day begins four weeks stuffed
full of events, culminating on Christmas Day. Then, ironically, many
will be thankful that the busy holiday season is over. The holiday
season places a rather conditional spin on the theme of Thanksgiving.
We hope that we will be thankful—assuming that everything works out the
way we have anticipated. We will be thankful if the major meals and
events of the season go off without a hitch. We will be thankful if
that certain annoying relative is not quite so annoying this year. We
will be thankful if the year-end bonus is what we hoped for. We will be
thankful if we get most of the Christmas presents we would like. We
will be thankful if everyone pitches in and helps with all the work
that has to be done. In contrast, God’s idea of thanksgiving is not
dependent upon your events and circumstances.”
On “Calling for Truth” today, Jay and I will discuss preparing our hearts to be truly thankful.
