Celebrate to the Lord!

“We will go with our young and our old, with our sons and our daughters, and with our flocks and herds, because we are to celebrate a festival to the LORD.” (Exodus 10:9)

It’s true that in this passage Moses wasn’t speaking of our Thanksgiving, but it seems logical to approach it in the same way: Let’s celebrate a festival to the Lord this week!

Giving thanks to God should begin as a holy obligation; we need to thank Him for all that He has done for us, but it certainly doesn’t end there.  As we recall all of the ways in which He has blessed us, how can we not celebrate?  This is a time for joy, happiness… and renewal.  This is a time for family, happy memories and gratitude.  This year, let’s celebrate our Thanksgiving with all of our hearts and all of our energy, keeping in mind that giving thanks to God is a joy as well as a life long pursuit.
