For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him, as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?”—William A. Ward
The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.—H.U. Westermayer
There is no such thing as gratitude unexpressed. If it is unexpressed, it is plain, old-fashioned ingratitude.—Robert Brault
When we were children we were grateful to those who filled our stockings at Christmas time. Why are we not grateful to God for filling our stockings with legs?—G.K. Chesterton
Grateful hearts tend to be generous. This coming weekend commences Bethlehem’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive, which will collect groceries and other personal items for three food shelves in the Twin Cities. It’s a great project for children to join in. Pick up your empty grocery bag along with instructions at any of our three campuses this weekend, or contact the church office.
