Many lament that the materialism that pervades Advent distracts from the true meaning of Christmas. But what about Thanksgiving, which has been overtaken by gluttony, sloth, and trampling our neighbors for the best sale price on the latest gadget? In this special Day-Before-Thanksgiving edition of Deep in Scripture, Marcus Grodi and Jim Anderson look at Philippians 4:4-7, and what it truly means to rejoice in the Lord, and show gratitude for every good gift that comes from Him.
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let all men know your forbearance. The Lord is at hand. Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:4-7
