Give thanks to Him whom we hear.
As we begin the month of November, a focused time of Thanksgiving, we will think of many things to be thankful for, but do we give The One we hear our first thanksgiving?
“Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:4-7.
There are a lot of worldly possessions we are thankful to have. Some are even abundantly blessed with these material possessions.
Let’s not forget to give thanksgiving to what is the most important.
Our Savior, Jesus Christ, and His atonement.
His restored Gospel.
The plan of happiness.
Blessings of the fruit of the spirit (Gal. 5:22-23).
Our eternal families.

Direction from personal revelation.
Let’s remember these things as we go through this beautiful month. The month that sets the tone for the month we celebrate the birth of our Savior.
There is no reason to celebrate either holiday without including our Lord and Master. It is because of Him we can experience all of life’s beauty.
