Look Beyond Yourself!, You are Alive and Doing Well, Be Thankful

By the grace of God, we are living in the greatest nation on earth. We take care of most of the nations on earth. We are generous people, caring people, forgiving people. We were founded by Godly men wanting to create a Godly nation. This Thanksgiving Day, tomorrow, be thankful for all you have received!

Yet, as you view the negative (on purpose) broadcasts from our main media sources, you would not see this wonderful country we live in; you would see what they want you to see…strife, hate, jealousy, inequality, anger, racism…which all comes (they say) from the group of people that love America the most!

This Thanksgiving, I invite you to set aside politics, take a few minutes and read Ben Shapiro’s wonderful article entitled, The Ungrateful Nation where he writes, after mentioning all the good things that are going on in America, the following paragraph:

“Yet as of July 2018, fewer than half of Americans surveyed by Gallup said they are extremely proud to be American. Just 32 percent of Democrats, down from 56 percent in 2013, said they are extremely proud to be American; only 42 percent of independents said are were extremely proud to be American. That’s ridiculous. Regardless of political affiliation, we should be proud to live in a society founded on eternal truths, in which we have the ability to thrive based on our own choices.”

These people should be ashamed! How ungodly! You have been given so very much, yet your selfishness has blinded you and closed your heart. Look around you, be grateful, and then go out and spread some holiday cheer to brighten someone else’s life. Look beyond yourself!
