In some areas of the U.S., today is Columbus Day. Some people dispute this for various reasons. It’s also the Canadian Thanksgiving. Some people dispute this for various reasons.
What if we stopped disputing and simply said thank you for the blessed life we live in North America? What if we did a kindness for another? What if we thought of someone more than ourselves? What if we applied what God says to our own culture?
Don’t abuse a laborer who is destitute and needy, whether he is a fellow Israelite living in your land and in your city. Pay him at the end of each workday; he’s living from hand to mouth and needs it now. If you hold back his pay, he’ll protest to God and you’ll have sin on your books. (Deuteronomy 24:14-15, MSG)
Prayer – Father God, please accept the inadequate thanksgiving we offer you for all the joy we experience before you. Amen (From 1 Thessalonians 3:9, MSG)
