As Americans, we are uniquely blessed by this glorious heritage. And we must always remember, blessings are by definition not earned, but are gifts. We should seize upon the opportunity of Thanksgiving week to thank our Heavenly Father for those priceless gifts we enjoy. May all of us resolve to teach this great heritage with which we have been entrusted to our children and our grandchildren, and may we pledge to pass it on to them unsullied and undiminished.
And our manifold blessings as Americans pale into insignificance when compared to our blessings as children of the King redeemed by the Lord Jesus Christ.
As Christians, we are encouraged in the Holy Scripture to have an attitude of gratitude, and we are admonished apostolically when we fail to demonstrate that quality.
