Make your thanksgiving the best : Be Missional
Move outside your comfort zone
Often we make Thanksgiving all about our own family, Mom’s famous pumpkin pie, or delicious stuffing. It is right to celebrate with family, but perhaps you can add the simple element of serving other people too! Instead of just donating some food or dropping off a few dollars in a red collection bucket, as an individual or even better as a family, volunteer this Thanksgiving season. The goal is: how do we make this season a memorable and extraordinary event? In order to do that, you can’t just celebrate the holiday exactly as you always have done!
What we really want is more than a meal. We want thankfulness to pervade our inner life. Serving others is the path to this reality. Our view of the world changes. Our heart is recalibrated to be less about “me and mine” and more about others.
