O give thanks this Thanksgiving

Body
Just today I heard that one social media forum blocked a potent posting of a bible passage. My guess is that it spoke of a truth that God gives us, a good teaching, though someone was offended. That’s what often happens in our world. If you don’t like what someone says, attack them, or at least shut down their free speech. This is when I am so thankful that our local newspapers will print our words, even if they possibly disagree. Here and in God’s house, Christians can print and preach God’s Word without being threatened or bullied. To quote from Psalm 136, “O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy endures forever.” Of course, November is blessed with Thanksgiving, but for what? To whom?
