BE YE THANKFUL
"BE YE THANKFUL"
INTRO: The THANKSGIVING SEASON is a GREAT time of year. And there are SO MANY THINGS for which we
can be thankful, particularly those of us who live in America. We can trace the THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY back to the days of the PILGRIMS, when they gave thanks unto God for His provision on their behalf. In fact, the FIRST
THANKSGIVING took place in 1621 with the PILGRIMS and the WAMPANOAG INDIANS, when over 100 people
attended. VENISON topped the menu and they ate for THREE CONSECUTIVE DAYS. The gathering was not
necessarily referred to as THANKSGIVING, but as a feast it was conducted regularly until 1863 when PRESIDENT
ABRAHAM LINCOLN OFFICIALLY DECLARED THANKSGIVING AS A NATIONAL HOLIDAY. So many times
the focus of our THANKSGIVING is on the physical, and it is right and important to do so. But today, I would like for us to FOCUS ON SPIRITUAL REASONS FOR GIVING THANKS. In doing so, we will look at the PRAYER OF THE
APOSTLE PAUL for the CHRISTIANS AT COLOSSEE.
