Giving Thanks

Hay HarvestOur Thanksgiving celebration may go back nearly 400 years to the Pilgrims, but that’s a blink in time to God. We are reminded of his abundant care for us in these verses:

“Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands” (Deuteronomy 7:9 NIV).

A thousand generations? Do the math. You don’t need to know how many years in a generation to know it’s a really long time in human history. This is a comforting reality in an age when nanoseconds matter. God is God, consistently and persistently faithful and loving through all generations, including ours.

May our thankful hearts reflect our love and faithfulness to the God who loved us first.
