We’re all familiar with the pilgrims gathering together, enjoying a feast and giving thanks for God, but did you know that during their first winter, they were also giving thanks when their food ration was 5 kernels of corn per person?
God’s word says “Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Note it says “in”, not “for all things”! In holding little, the Lord taught the pilgrims He is willing and able to satisfy.
Happy Thanksgiving! May your thankful heart bring you a continual feast all year long.
