THANKSGIVING FOR THE CHRIST

The Thanksgiving season affords an opportunity to express our thanks to Almighty God for His many blessings. At this season we are accustomed to look back with thankfulness for the good that has been ours during the past year. We also look forward and give thanks for the love of God that always awaits us and is expressed in happy experiences. The Psalmist sang (Ps. 139:5), "Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me." The all-encompassing love of God is indeed a cause for thanksgiving. We can look forward with the same certainty that good awaits us as we have when we look back upon the blessings which have always been ours.

Welling up in every heart today is a yearning for peace, security, and love. How deeply this desire is felt; how earnestly we pray for it! If peace and love are not yet manifest in our own or world affairs, we can at least thank God for His Christ, or divine manifestation. Sooner or later the transcendent spiritual power of the Christ, with its accompanying peace, will dawn in the heart of humanity. Mary Baker Eddy says (Message to The Mother Church for 1900, p. 11), "The human sigh for peace and love is answered and compensated by divine love."
