Thanks for Scripture

Re: Verse reading–2 Timothy 4:1-8, 16-18 (day four)
Today is Thanksgiving…the day when every Christian is particularly thankful for the blessings from God. Gratefulness is a daily experience though…the fourth Thursday in November is no different than any other day of the year for giving thanks to God.  (That is, unless you count the massive amounts of food that accompany this day’s thanks!)  Thanksgiving Day is a reminder of God’s working in the history of America to provide a bountiful harvest for the early settlers.  We use it today to remind us of the myriad of gifts bestowed upon us by our creator God.  In our passage this week, Paul reminds us of the importance of God’s Word in our lives.  Paul says there will come a day when people will not accept the truth of God’s Word and will seek false teachers.  (Are we there yet?)  In many countries the freedom to even read God’s Word is non-existent.  As you are thanking God today for your blessings, make sure His Word is on your list of blessings!
