1 Chronicles 16:31-34
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”
Let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them!
Let the trees of the forest sing, let them sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
Normally for Thanksgiving we have family members over, but like many of you, not this year. We will celebrate with our household. As every year, we will rise, eat breakfast, and put on the Thanksgiving Day parade. During the parade, I will be busy in the kitchen working on the meal.
But this year we will not have family over.
Yet we remain thankful. Even through all this mess of 2020 we must remain thankful for God is good and his love endures forever. While our worship services are different, and our congregation is scattered, God is with us. Even though we wear masks, and limit our contacts, God is with us. No matter what happens, God is with us. That is God’s eternal promise.
As you sit down for your meal this Thanksgiving, remember to “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”
