Give Thanks

May God be gracious to us and bless us
    and make his face to shine upon us, Selah
that thy way may be known upon earth,
    thy saving power among all nations.
Let the peoples praise thee, O God;
    let all the peoples praise thee!

Let the nations be glad and sing for joy,
    for thou dost judge the peoples with equity
    and guide the nations upon earth. Selah
Let the peoples praise thee, O God;
    let all the peoples praise thee!

The earth has yielded its increase;
    God, our God, has blessed us.
God has blessed us;
    let all the ends of the earth fear him!

(Psalm 67)

We have much to be thankful for. Throughout human history, famine was an ever constant threat. Man, most even, always wondered if they would be able to put food on the table the next day. We here in the west rarely have such concerns. Only the poorest among us have this fear. And even that is often alleviated by the charity of others.

So on today, a day of thanks here in the United States, let us be thankful for the bounty of the land. Despite our many troubles, God still showers us with blessings that we should ever offer praise and thanks for.
