Happy Thanksgiving?

Happy Thanksgiving. Is it an oxymoron this year?

So many have gone before in such harder, debilitating, desperate times, with so much more thankfulness in their hearts displayed. So much dependence, and gratitude towards God for all He has provided in the hardest of times. The great old hymns tell of it; hearts bursting with gladness for the great things He has done.

I somehow think it’s our pride, our entitlement, our own selfishness, that makes hearts turn against our Creator and dares us to not find gratitude. How dare we sacrifice our comfort, our traditions, our freedom, to benefit the elderly, the feeble, the unhealthy. No one can take these things away from us, tell us what to do, where we can go. How dare anyone try!

We have not been attacked by an enemy—that in itself would put us on one side and create unity; but we are being attacked from within, which will be humanity’s own destruction.

Heaven is weeping for the lack of discipline we show; for where is the love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control? If we are to be known by our fruits, our world today is lost.

God help us all.
