November 24 – Thanksgiving Day (USA)

“I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. This will please the Lord more than an ox, more than a bull with its horns and hooves.” Psalm 69:30-31 (NIV)

The psalmist David understood the real meaning of thanksgiving. He knew that it glorified God. It made God more glorious. That is also what happens when we thank God, too.  It reminds us of His glory and it reminds others who hear us thank Him. So God is pleased when we thank Him. David realized that genuine and sincere thanksgiving made the Lord truly happy – more so than the many valuable animal sacrifices people were bringing. So, also, God is more pleased with our thanks than anything else we could do for Him today.
