Giving Real Thanks

It is important to know your history. This week all across our nation high school and junior high school history professors were teaching their students about the first thanksgiving. They taught them about the pilgrims and the Mayflower, about the Indians and Squanto. And what did they conclude? Most likely they concluded that the first thanksgiving was a joint feast between the Native Americans and the Pilgrims as a way for the latter to say, "Thank you for teaching us how to grow crops."

This absurd ideas has been repeated for years, despite that it continues to be proven false. The fact is, friends, the first thanksgiving was a thanks offered up to God for bringing the English pioneers to safety, keeping them, and providential providing for them. So when you celebrate thanksgiving this year remember who you are really giving thanks to!

"What do you have that you did not recieve? If then you recieved it, why do you boast as if you did not recieve it." (1 Corinthians 4:7)
