Today is Thanksgiving. It’s a fun way to kick off the fall season and get excited about the coloured trees, bonfires, cooler weather, and all things apple and pumpkin. But in the busyness of this holiday, we can tend to forget the One who made it all. Let’s take some time today to pause and give thanks back to the Lord for His marvelous work.

It’s good to ask questions because it should cause you to look to the Bible to find the answers. In searching for truth with an open heart, the Lord will guide you to the answers you’re looking for. The question today asks, is God good? Though I could do a whole study on this, here are some of the answers I have for you today:
“… Love’s flames are fiery flames – the fiercest of all. Mighty waters cannot extinguish love; rivers cannot sweep it away. If a man were to give all his wealth for love, it would be utterly scorned. ” – Song of Songs 8:6-7
Love is powerful. It helps us overcome so many hardships in relationships. It draws people together. It’s a strong characteristic and emotion that God has given us in order to love Him and love others in return of the love He shares with us. We don’t love apart from God’s love.
Leaves produce oxygen, light, and sound. We are to be Jesus’ light to the world. We are to share the ‘oxygen’/gospel we have received to the world. We are called to sing praises of worship to our Lord. We can all do this by tapping into the True Vine.
The trunk of a tree is a great portion of its strength. The roots build a sturdy foundation underground and the trunk continues to build the strength above it. As the tree ages, the trunk gets higher and wider. The trunk tells the story of how old the tree is. It also holds characteristics of the kind of tree that it is. For example, a maple tree has red markings on the inside of the trunk.
