Traditions that became Holidays… Pilgrims to the New World had their Harvest Feast with immense grattitude. Thanksgiving traces it’s roots to Plymouth MA in 1621.

This verse came up for us in sharing over our food.

Posed this morning as a prayerful after thought for the Thanksgiving Holiday yesterday … it remains sweet for the spirit.

Upon reflection, we recognize the thoughts in First Samuel 12:24 as applying so much more widely — Believers: might we endeavor to bear this in mind year-round?

But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you. 1Sam. 12:24

If history is it’s own lesson, we’d be wise to understand the roots of our Holidays.  In the case of Thanksgiving, it is truly rooted in the Protestant Reformation, tracing it’s origins to Plymouth Massecheusetts in 1612.
