I do not know how to answer this poll.

 

I gather together together with family to sit and eat together. We have fellowship together. We do not disciss the pilgrims who discovered and settled America at this time. We do not discuss our blessings of being in America, per se, at this time. We do not "celebrate" the "Thanksgiving" holiday as would be proper. We just enjoy a day off of work to get together and have an enjoyable time as family an friends.

There is a thanksgiving offering in the Bible

 

The only possible drawback is that there shoudn't be any "leftovers" :biggrin:

 

"11 ˜This [is] the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings which he shall offer to the LORD:

12 ˜If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer, with the sacrifice of thanksgiving, unleavened cakes mixed with oil, unleavened wafers anointed with oil, or cakes of blended flour mixed with oil.

13 ˜Besides the cakes, [as] his offering he shall offer leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offering.

14 ˜And from it he shall offer one cake from each offering [as] a heave offering to the LORD. It shall belong to the priest who sprinkles the blood of the peace offering.

15 ˜The flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offering for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day it is offered. He shall not leave any of it until morning.

16 ˜But if the sacrifice of his offering [is] a vow or a voluntary offering, it shall be eaten the same day that he offers his sacrifice; but on the next day the remainder of it also may be eaten;

17 ˜the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day must be burned with fire.

18 ˜And if [any] of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offering is eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, nor shall it be imputed to him; it shall be an abomination [to] him who offers it, and the person who eats of it shall bear guilt.

19 ˜The flesh that touches any unclean thing shall not be eaten. It shall be burned with fire. And as for the [clean] flesh, all who are clean may eat of it.

20 ˜But the person who eats the flesh of the sacrifice of the peace offering that [belongs] to the LORD, while he is unclean, that person shall be cut off from his people.

21 ˜Moreover the person who touches any unclean thing, [such as] human uncleanness, [an] unclean animal, or any abominable unclean thing, and who eats the flesh of the sacrifice of the peace offering that [belongs] to the LORD, that person shall be cut off from his people.`"

22 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

23 "Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ˜You shall not eat any fat, of ox or sheep or goat." (Leviticus 7:11-23 NKJV)

The person who accepts Jesus as Lord, Savior and God can now rest in knowing that Jesus' punishment, death and resurrection are payment in full for all their sins.

 

No more need for animal sacrifice

 

Salvation is a gift that cannot be obtained by works, lineage, heritage or a "special prayer"

 

"8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; [it is] the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9 NKJV)

 

tsigan80. you are right, thanksgiving should be everyday!

 

"Oh, how great [is] Your goodness, Which You have laid up for those who fear You, [Which] You have prepared for those who trust in You In the presence of the sons of men!" (Psalms 31:19 NKJV)
