Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2017 November 23

"And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful." (Colossians 3:14-15)

Today’s Morsel:  Around the world today, many will celebrate Thanksgiving by hosting dinners with family and friends, watching football, playing games, and enjoying just a good time of plain old fellowship.  There will be new friends made, perhaps new relationship established for future marriages.  There may be complaints by some wishing that they had not eaten that last turkey leg.
 The Nation of Israel was to keep three feasts to commemorate God’s divine provision for them.  The Passover, which was to commemorate their delivery from bondage; the Feast of Pentecost, to commemorate the giving of the law; and the Feast of Tabernacle, to commemorate the provision in the wilderness.  Each feast was to serve as a method of giving thanks for what God had done for them.  Paul said that we should allow the peace of God to rule in our hearts, to the which also we are called in one body; and be thankful. For the born-again believer, every day should be a day of thanksgiving.  Enjoy this special day with family and friends, giving thanks.  And then continue giving thanks always.  

Sing: Thanks, Thanks, I give you thanks, for all You have done.  I am so blessed, my soul has found rest, O’ Lord, I give You thanks.

Thought For Today: In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.    

Happy Thanksgiving!
