Thanksgiving comes from the feast of Sukkot or Tabernacles. The Hebrews were commanded by Moses to leave their houses and dwell in small tents called Sukkahs. On the 15th day of the 7th month they were to celebrate the Hebrew feast of Thanksgiving. Living in these tents or huts was not comfortable, but God uses this act of obedience to show how blessed they were in their houses in the Promised Land. Their houses, the fruit of the land, was a gift from God and should not be taken for granted. In order to have something, you have to lose it. Imagine if you lost your health or your closest friends, your family, your dreams, every blessing. These things are all gifts from God and can't be taken for granted; and should not be taken lightly. Learn from this act of the Hebrews - for all good gifts cometh from God. The next breath that you breathe comes from God. Don't you think that's a blessing that should be celebrated? Stop taking God's gifts for granted, thank Him today and every day. Your life will become a celebration.
From Message #1070 - The Third Practice
Give thanks to the Lord in all His goodness. Take nothing for granted. Count all your blessings -- as gifts given by God.
