            Christians, we should set time aside on Thanksgiving week and especially on Thanksgiving Day to
        lift our hearts and voices to the King of kings and the Lord of lords. “Enter into his gates with thanks-
        giving, … Ps. 100:4
          ‘Tis true that we should be thankful everyday, but Thanksgiving Day is a day in which we, one
        nation under God, should lift our voices with prayer and praise to God.
          Thanksgiving is a holiday in which our forefathers set time aside to thank God for his goodness,
        mercy, and blessings. The goodness of God is so great. He has given us our Lord and Saviour Jesus
        Christ. Our Pilgrim forefathers set aside a time to thank God for His goodness for bringing them
        through the rough times, and
        giving them freedom to serve and worship Him. Let us always remember what God has done for us
        and see what God is doing.
          Praise the Lord! There is no one like Him. He is King of kings and Lord of lords. The Heaven of heav-
        ens cannot contain Him. No one can outlive God,
        and no one can live abundantly without Him. God
        knows and sees all. Great are all His ways. They are
        past finding out. God’s mercy endureth forever.
        Praise His name!
