"Thankfulness, Not a One Day Thing."

I must admit this is probably my most favorite time of the year, because it's around this time of year people seem to be the most caring and generous with more than just the people they associate with, but also with total strangers. This is the time of year we label as the season of giving thanks.

We come together and sit down at dinner tables all across this country and world and we begin to tell one another how thankful we are to have one another in our lives and that it shouldn't be just during this time of the year that we get together and appreciate each other. Well, the truth of the matter is that is exactly what happens, because no sooner as the last piece of sweet potato pie is eaten and the last of the ballgames is over we go our separate ways for another year before once again we are thankful for the people in our lives.

We as believers are just as guilty as those who don't profess Jesus as their Lord and Saviour, and the truth of the matter is we as believers should be equally as thankful for every day that the Lord allows us to see each and every day. Let's remember to be mindful of the scripture that says, " This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."Psa. 118:24

So, yes of course we are to be thankful for this time of the year but not at the expense of not being thankful everyday and the rest of the year.

Lack of gratitude is a real weakness on my part, and many other Christians.
