The Power of Thanksgiving


The giving of thanks is a biblical concept going all the way back to Noah and his family in the book of Genesis. As soon as the earth was dry after the flood, Noah and his family were finally able to leave the ark. Noah’s first act was to build an altar and give thanks and worship to God.

The act of thanksgiving is a way of recognizing the faithfulness of God in our lives – it is a way to consciously take time to humble ourselves before God and each other. And Scripture says those who humble themselves will one day be lifted up by God.

Because many of our founding mothers and fathers were Bible-believing Christians, days of thanksgiving have been observed through the generations, beginning with the Pilgrims and continuing through the founding of the United States.

Carrying from Europe the tradition of a day of thanksgiving after a successful harvest, the Pilgrims gave thanks to God for the bounty of the harvest after a year of sickness and hunger.
