A Thanksgiving Thought - Bonita Y. McCoy

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusts in Him. Psalm 34:8

With Thanksgiving coming up, many of us have turned our thoughts to hosting gatherings and planning menus. We count the numbers who will sit at our table, and then try to remember what each person’s favorite dish was last year.

We begin digging through the old tried and true recipes, and then we start taking polls to see what everyone is expecting. These vote for Aunt Renae’s cornbread dressing; the next group all agree we need molasses crinkle cookies.

Do you want turkey or ham? And it’s unanimous … both.

With coupons in hand, we make the trek to the super market, the dollar store, the boxed warehouse, and the discount place because we want the very best for our family and friends. We want the meal and the conversation to be memorable for those we love.

I think that’s how our Father in heaven is toward us. He wants the very best for us, and he wants us to remember all that he has done for us.

He wants us to taste and see that He is good.

As we go about preparing for the holiday, let us take a moment each day to taste the goodness of God’s salvation, to acknowledge His Holy Spirit in us, and to recall a time that God made Himself known to us.

May God richly bless you throughout this season of celebration.
Happy Thanksgiving to your family from mine.
