The Chaplains Corner

The Chaplains Corner

Guest blogger, Chaplain Paul, is one of the most effective chaplains in America today. He is an emergency responder to every situation.

Hey, this is the Chaplain again.

This week is Thanksgiving. It’s a time that we should pause and be thankful for all the good things that are in our lives. But originally Thanksgiving was more than just a time to recognize the blessings. It was intended to be a time that we do more than just remember what we have – and remember WHO gave it all to us. A time that we acknowledge that it’s only by God’s grace and favor that we have the blessings that are ours.

Of course our culture today is doing all it can to eliminate God from society. Today’s political correctness has little place for the God of our forefathers and no place for Jesus. So our history books have been rewritten. Our children are not taught that on that first Thanksgiving the Pilgrims gave thanks to Almighty God for His provision. Instead they are told that it was just a time to express appreciation to the Indians for their help.

Please, don’t allow this week to slip by without taking time to remember that it is God that blesses you. And his greatest blessing is, the Lord Jesus Christ. Heb. 13: 15 tells us,
“Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.”
Do you remember the old hymn, “Count your blessings, name them one by one. Count your many blessings, see what God has done.” We should have an attitude of gratitude, especially as Christians. And we need to remember, it’s all because of God’s love and grace extended to us thru Christ.
