Firstly, Bible or Not wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving holiday. We have so much to be thankful to God for!
“Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.” – Psalms 95:2 KJV
A great American tradition is Thanksgiving Day dinner with turkey and all of the trimmings, and while we enjoy good food with family, friends and loved ones, we should remember the joy that comes from the Lord. And what better way is there to have joy and thanksgiving than to play a game? So here is a game I encourage everyone to play today: The Thanksgiving Day Game.
The Thanksgiving Day Game – How to Play
During your Thanksgiving Day dinner, go around the table from person to person, with each person doing number 1, then go around again with number 2, etc.
1. Say something good about God that you are thankful for (something you know from the Bible or experience)
2. Say something good about the world that you are thankful for (nature, organizations, people, activities, anything good)
3. Say something good about yourself that you are thankful for (that God says you are or that He has given you)
4. Say something good about today that you are thankful for (any way that God has blessed you)
5. Say something good about tomorrow that you are thankful for (how we trust God with our future)
Now go back to number 1 and keep going round and round as long as you’d like.
I guarantee the Thanksgiving Day Game will be fun while bringing the true meaning of Thanksgiving into clear focus. God has blessed us all, in small and big ways, so let’s rejoice in it, be glad and give thanks to Him.
Let us also remember the many who are suffering today, the many who cannot find it in themselves to be thankful due to hardship, loss and affliction. The holidays are hardest on these, so let’s try to make a difference. After all if God has blessed us, should we not pass on that blessing to others? May God bless us all on this Thanksgiving Day, and let us be filled with joy and true thankfulness.

Please join us in reflecting on all of the things we can be thankful for, not only today, but each day the the Lord gives us the breath of life. Here are more Thanksgiving Bible verses. And as we are thankfully appreciating God’s blessings upon us, let’s also remember the many in need this Thanksgiving Day and coming Christmas Season.

I can only imagine how many times today I will hear someone say thank God it’s Friday, or TGIF. So of course I wondered what the Bible had to say about it.
Firstly, each and every day is a gift from God: “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it”. So, whether Friday or Monday, we thank God for the day. All days are equal in the eyes of God, and each day is to be observed with thanksgiving. We see in the book of Romans:
“One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks.” – Romans 14:5-6 NKJV
Yes, the key is thanks, so today, THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY!
