I once asked my officemate, "What do you do on Thanksgiving day?" And he replied, "Families get together, we eat Turkey, have beer and chat to make up for the one year that we have not touched base." I felt sad because he didn't mention about saying grace or a prayer to the Almighty God who created everything including our existence. He is supposed to be the reason why we celebrate Thanksgiving- to give thanks to God.
1 Timothy 4:4-5 -For
everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it
is received with gratitude; for it is sanctified by means of the word
of God and prayer.
