Thanksgiving

We can tie – Wisdom of God to Thanksgiving.  It is a matter of realizing that everything we have comes from God including his wisdom if we seek it.

Praise him for all his gifts and seek wisdom of God in everything you do.

Thanksgiving is the greatest form of Worship, The Passover meal celebrated by the Jews prefigured the Holy Eucharist instituted by Jesus on the last Supper, where we eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Lamb of God. A sacrifice of thanksgiving [Ps. 50:14] refers to the sacrifice of Christ for our sins. The Word Eucharist means Thanksgiving and comes from the Greek.

Each one of us has some insights, knowledge and wisdom, but the scope is usually fairly narrow and limited to our sphere of influence and knowledge–our world. We are good at what we do and have gained wisdom and knowledge regarding our special interests and experience. But if we were suddenly placed in a new, unfamiliar position or found ourselves in a foreign city unable to speak the language, not knowing how to find a bathroom, we quickly  become aware of limitations. Our knowledge and experience will not help us. We need someone to help us.

When we consider the seven billion people in the world – each having wisdom and knowledge about life in their world – we realize how little wisdom each of us as individuals possess. Compared to God–next to zero!

Now then, think about the wisdom of God. He knows everything and is all wise. Even if we compiled all the wisdom and knowledge of everyone in the world and measured it against God’s wisdom, it would still be almost nothing.

Praise God for whom all blessings flow.

Amen.
