To the Editor:
Well, it's close to Thanksgiving time again. We have so much to be thankful for. Our Abbah Jehovah has supplied everything we need. He has given us homes, food, cars and most of all He has given us His word to grow with.
We live like kings. At least most of us that live in the U.S. do. We have a variety of food and we get to live in our own home. So many people in foreign lands live in tents or cardboard boxes with very little food. With six billion people in the world, you would think that there would be a lot of hungry people and there is. If only we would share our food more. I know we have enough to go around.
In America, we put turkeys and ham on our tables. We have so much food at Thanksgiving that many of us come away bloated and continue to punish ourselves with second and third helpings. We usually make so much food we live on leftovers for days.
I thank Abbah Jehovah for all of our blessings He has blessed us with. In this time of plenty, we need to think about the people that are not as fortunate as we are.
I personally don't have a lot of extra cash, but I still sacrifice so that I can give to the Salvation Army and to Feeding South Dakota. It makes me feel good that I have helped some needy people. And I thank God that I was able to do so.
Yes, we have much to thank God for. And we can sure thank God for all of the things we don't have, that we don't want. One of these things, for me, would be hunger.
