Happy Thanks’taking’

November 22, 2012

Everyone says Happy Thanksgiving. This year, let’s think of it as Happy Thanks’taking’.

We could think of the holiday in either two ways:

One, we could think of it like this…we took the land from the Indians. Or think of something more recently, the gov’t is taking more from us (i.e. our money and our freedoms).

Or two, we could see it from the standpoint as creations from our Creator God, to be thankful for Thanks’taking’ because Jesus took our sin and crucified it on a cross of wood.

Thanks’taking’ is grace, God’s grace, to us.

So, how will you celebrate Thanks’taking’?

“Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!
Say also: “Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather and deliver us from among the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name, and glory in your praise.” 1 Chronicles 16:34,35

Happy Thanks’taking, for God is good-
