Reflecting on Thanksgiving 2020

November 25, 2020

Has there ever been a Thanksgiving where it’s been harder to give thanks than in 2020? Yes, we have much to be thankful for . . . but after this year, we just don’t feel it, right?

1 Thessalonians 5:16 reminds us to “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances . . . ” (ESV).

In all circumstances? Thankfulness is a practiced spiritual discipline. Sometimes you have to “do it before you feel it.”

This Thanksgiving, I encourage you to join me in reflecting on 1 Thessalonians 5:16 and practice thankfulness . . . “for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

-Dr. Jim Singleton, Executive Director of Missional Leadership, Leighton Ford Ministries
