The Significance of Thanksgiving
As time passes people’s perception of things change. The original meaning of Thanksgiving was to give thanks to God for seeing the pilgrims through such a hard winter. I can just imagine all the fun everyone had getting together, bringing their own foods to share and learning more about each other. I can just see the children teaching each other new games. The Indian children must have had games the pilgrim children had never heard of and vise versa.
Today I bet most families don’t even reflect on the pilgrims and Indians during Thanksgiving at all.
I am very thankful for what God did then and what He still does for us toTake time this Thanksgiving to reflect on how the prelude to their Thanksgiving has gotten us to where we are today. I an thankful for their courage. I hope we don’t one day destroy what they so courageously protected.
