Day 5: Thanksgiving Challenge
There’s nothing like home! This statement has so many wonderful meanings intertwined within it, but today we will focus on its meaning of shelter. Having a home to live in, a shelter or a place to retreat at the end of the night is definitely high on the list of thanks. Having the capability to come each night, eat dinner at your table, and sleep in your bed, especially on those rainy, snowy cold days is a true gift from God.
Today, on Day 5, let’s give thanks for our homes. Some of us have may have large estates, others smaller lake houses, or studio apartments, but whatever type of house we have, be thankful that we have a place to call home. A place that you can plop on the couch by the fire, after a busy day. A place that you can take a hot shower, after a cold day of working outside. A place that you can sit and enjoy the calm of the day, or a place that you may share stories with your loved ones, (if you live with your family). Think about this for a moment, in NYC alone, there are over 80,000 homeless people, either living in a box, a street bench or shelter. In California there are over 150,000, experiencing this same homeless living. They are getting their food from crumbs on the street, garbage cans and hopefully generous strangers, like you. Many do not know where they will get their next shower, or their next bed. So this morning be ever so thankful for your house, your shelter and your place to call home, on earth. Remember, we as Christians know, that in heaven God has built us many mansions, if we follow His word – and that is the ultimate shelter. So, let’s reflect on what God says about shelter and helping those who need it…
Enjoy your day and give many thanks for your blessings! Thank God for providing us shelter, and being our shelter – always. #GodIsGood
