In the midst of all the generic “thanks” being given today [Thanksgiving day in the US], I long for “thanks to be given to God.”

“Giving thanks always concerning all things in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, TO GOD, even the Father”
–Ephesians 5:20

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with Whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow.”
–James 1:17

Giving “thanks” is such a hollow and disappointing thing without thanking everlasting God, the true Source of all the goodness we know.
