Is it about football? Parades? Food? Family? Freedom? What?
It seems any holiday that has remotely spiritual connections has gotten muddled and commercialized. We should not be surprised. Dr. Bob Jones Sr. said that, “When gratitude dies on the altar of a man’s heart, that man is well-nigh hopeless.” I believe it. The Bible puts it this way:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Rom 1:21
All good gifts around us
Are sent from heaven above,
Then thank the Lord, O thank the Lord
For all His love.–Matthias Claudius, 1782
