Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is officially Thanksgiving Day, even though every day for us as Christians should be a day of thanksgiving. Recall the words of David in Psalm 69:30-32—

I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify Him with thanksgiving. This will please the Lord more than an ox or a bull with horns and hooves. When the humble see it they will be glad; you who seek God, let your hearts revive.”

Our thanksgiving is a form of praise; it is a form of witness. Our thanksgiving “magnif[ies]” the Lord. To magnify God is to cause Him “to be held in greater esteem or respect” (Merriam-Webster definition of “magnify”). Our thanksgiving pleases God more than any sacrifice. Thanksgiving is more pleasing to God because in thanksgiving, we humbly go to God and express our utter gratitude for everything He has blessed us with—in the knowledge that we deserve none of it. So today (and every day). let’s be thankful to God. In thanking God, we magnify Him, we praise Him, we please Him.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
