I sort of feel that we make this Thanksgiving time too short. The Bible recognizes the celebration of this day in a number of passages. More so than any other special occasion do you read in the Scriptures how the children held special days of giving thanks. One of the most beautiful records of the celebration is found in the book of 1 Chronicles 16:. It's called a festival sacrifice that king David held to celebrate the ark of God that was set in place in a tent they had pitched for it. The Psalms are full of verses that honor the Lord with praise of giving thanks. We are making great to-do over other days that are not even recognized as being celebrated by people in the Bible; like New Years, Halloween which is not a spiritual event but pagan event. In the book of 2 Timothy 3: 2- "unthankful" is mentioned as one of the traits of the people of the last days. If there is any special event that we need to magnify, even to the extent of making it a weeklong festival, it should be Thanksgiving. No other day calls for the worship of praise like this time of giving thanks.

Even the coming of the Lord is recognized by giving thanks. Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Cor. 9:15 "Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable Gift." Often the writer in God's Word begins a verse with, "thanks be to God", and He is worthy of the recognition all the time. So let’s not move on to what the world tells us is more important for the day. But we should continue to give God the glory for all things He is giving us.
