Today’s reading: Genesis 21:33
With today being Thanksgiving in the United States, Genesis 21:33 caught my attention.
“Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba and called there on the name of the LORD, the Everlasting God.”
Immediately after his dealings with Abimelech, Abraham demonstrated his thankfulness to God for His constant love, protection, guidance and provision. Recognizing God and thanking Him was a regular activity for Abraham. The same should be said for us.
God is good all the time! But in the busyness of life, especially during Thanksgiving and Christmas season we are officially now in, thanking God can get pushed aside for other things that seem more important. Let’s take some time today to reflect on God’s goodness and offer Him our heartfelt thanks. Tami
