Thanksgiving-- An American Holiday

 I don’t know how it happened but somehow Thanksgiving began to be called “Turkey Day” in America.  I suspect this occured when children were taught that on the first Thanksgiving the Pilgrims thanked the Indians for helping them grow crops.  Yes, Indians were invited to the harvest feast, and I’m sure that the Pilgrims did thank the Indians for helping them, but it was God who they thanked that day, as they did every day.  See here.  I pray that this Thanksgiving in America everyone old, young, rich, poor will know that it is God who provided every good and perfect gift.  I pray that each one will humble himself and thank God for His provision.
