God is the Source of all Nov. 19, 2017

Nov. 19, 2017

Text: Deuteronomy 8:7-18

Luke 17:11-19

Few days from now we will be celebrating Thanksgiving, a Day when give thanks for family, career, job, good health, nation, and every other thing we have. As we celebrate, one place that signifies all that we give thanks for is the family meal today. It typifies the abundance of the American life. But As we celebrate this year, there is a great caution that God gave to the children of Israel which is very essential for us today.

On the verge of entry into the Promised Land, God told the Israelites that the land He was about to give them to take possession of is one of abundance. There will be no scarcity of food, and minerals. Then God warns that “when you shall have eaten your full, built pleasant houses, and sit in your recliners, don’t forget me.”

How often we easily forget that God is the source of all we have. This passage reminds us that God is the Source of all we are and all we have. Therefore, we should acknowledge Him and give Him His deserved glory. This is what one of the healed lepers did. He returned to acknowledge as the sources of his healing and thanked him. This is exactly what we are called to do during Thanksgiving and every day.
