Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving, and perform your vows to the Most High, Psalm 50:14

The psalmist directs us in our thanksgiving. As is clear from the entire psalm, thanksgiving is not limited to the ceremonies that belong to the sanctuary. In fact, true thanksgiving consists of leaving sin behind and living for the glory of God. That is the point our God still makes today. We celebrate thanksgiving, and it is not limited to what we do in official things, such as going to church and having family functions. True thanksgiving consists of ordering one’s way rightly. May our thanksgiving show in the lives we live as redeemed through Christ.
