Sometimes it seems so repetitious to say that we have much to be thankful for. Yet, if we take the time to look around and see the way other countries are struggling, we can’t help but know that God has richly blessed us.
It’s easy to get caught up in wanting the best of everything, the latest gadgets and whiz-bang technology. Yet people in other countries are wondering where their next meal is coming from, wondering if their malnourished children will survive or if they will ever get the medical attention they so desperately need.
As a nation, the vast majority of us take these things for granted. If we have problems or inconveniences, most communities have set up organizations or agencies to see that you are taken care of until difficulties are settled. If one becomes disabled, we have a system that will cover most of our needs. Let’s face it, what our nation calls “poverty” is known as wealthy in other parts of the world.
As the season of Thanksgiving draws near, take time to reflect on the way God has blessed the United States of America. Think about our homes, our cities and communities, the opportunity to elect our government officials. We are truly a blessed nation.
Take time to thank God for all he’s done for us as individuals and as a nation. Try to make this a daily routine and not just an annual event. We are a magnificently blessed people and nation!
