Thankful for the Harvest
Thanksgiving was originally designed to celebrate the fall harvest. Months after the farmer’s seeds are sown, there are no guarantees as to how big the harvest will be, or what price the crops will bring.
So, when harvest time finally comes, the result is a reminder of God’s sovereignty and provision. For any farmer who has ever lost an entire crop, any return is reason to be grateful to God, but a good harvest can bring great joy.
Deuteronomy 16:13 teaches, “Celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles for seven days after you have gathered the produce of your threshing floor and your winepress. Be joyful at your festival.”
Although most people, today, reap a harvest more frequently than once a year, it’s important to remember Who to praise for that harvest…God!
