“Let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful’ (Colossians 3:15, NLT).
Be thankful today for those who are in your life. Let His peace rule your thoughts, tongue, and action. God calls us to live in peace. Thanksgiving is a day when many come together to celebrate family. Families can be very diverse—with different ideas and approaches and personalities and issues. These differences can be divisive if humility and grace are not extended. Love those in your family that don’t agree with you. Love them with the peace that rules in your heart. Life is short, and each day may be the last you spend with those you love. Make this day of Thanksgiving one to remember for the rest of your life—a day when you didn’t have to make a point, or prove something, or be better than someone else. Make this a day when you became less so someone else could be more.
Happy a blessed Thanksgiving.
