The Source of Our Blessings (November 26, 2014)

Thanksgiving is here again – a time when we gather to offer thanks for the blessings of the past year. But…who are we thankful to?

George Washington knew.

More than 220 years ago, President Washington proclaimed, “It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefit, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.”

Abraham Lincoln knew as well. He called it folly for our nation to sever “its national identity and dependence from the God who has given it birth and blessed it for so long.”

As Americans, we all too often put our hope in the economy, better government, or military might – which are important – but as we gather to celebrate Thanksgiving this year, let’s remember it’s Almighty God from whom all our blessings flow.
