VERSES FOR THANKSGIVING
George W. Bush’s proclamations came just two months after the September 11 tragedy. He stated that In thankfulness and humility, we acknowledge, especially now, our dependence on One
greater than ourselves.
All of the early Thanksgiving celebrations had one thing in common. The thanksgiving was directed toward God. It did not matter that many had very hard
times. The people knew that God was their creator and provider and that all good things ultimately came from Him. It is in this spirit that we bring you
the following passages from God’s Word:
Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done.
–1 Chronicles 16:8; Psalm 105:1
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
–1 Thessalonians 5:18
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
1 Chronicles 16:34; Psalms 106:1;107:1; 118:1; 136:1
It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High.
Have a blessed and joyful Thanksgiving.
