When I was a boy, I would hear people say Sunday was the Lord’s day. My mom would correct anyone who singled out any day as the Lord’s day by replying that “every day is the Lord’s day.”
The scripture tests us that this (today) is the day that the Lord has made. Tomorrow is the day that the Lord has made. Yesterday is the day that the Lord has made.
Thanksgiving day is the day that He has made. It would almost seem as if Thanksgiving could be just another ordinary day that God has made.
Often times, it’s our own actions that make a day like Thanksgiving less than special. However, there were times in scripture when a certain day was made “holy”. The key word here is “made”, meaning it takes your effort. God would have the people set aside a certain day to be made “Holy”.
The word “Holy” means special, nothing like any other ordinary day. It’s where we get the word holiday –holy-day.
Today is our Thanksgiving holy-day. It should be special, unique and one-of-a-kind to be considered a holy-day. We should make this day unlike any other typical day.
What are doing today to make it “holy”?
What are you doing today to make it special?
What are you doing to make it uncommon?
What are you doing to have a something-other-than-common Thanksgiving?
