For Those Who Give

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for the United States. It is not a perfect country. There has been flawed leadership and great injustices over the years, but this does not overshadow the good it has done. This is the land that has given money to missionaries around the world. This is a generous, giving country that has indebted itself unbelievably to help other nations of the world. Thank God for the unselfish dedication of people in this country.

I am privileged to know many who have given of their time and finances to help others. Some have gone out to spread the Gospel and have helped to improve the lives of others in disadvantaged countries and in disadvantaged areas of the United States. Others have started churches and charitable organizations, provided educational opportunities, supported orphanages, provided disaster relief, supported families in need, and brought healing and deliverance to many people.

For the Lord your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God who does not show partiality nor take a bribe. He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and shows His love for the alien by giving him food and clothing. Deuteronomy 10:17–18 (NASB95)

God continue to strengthen Your people to do good in your Name, and bless this country.
