During this season of Thanksgiving, there are many reasons to be thankful. Of course, we should always give thanks to God for the numerous physical blessings He showers upon us. May we never forget that every good gift is possible because of Him and is provided by Him. We are thankful for the blessing of family. If we are allowed to sit and enjoy meals, games, & fellowship with friends or family this week, we are richly blessed.
On top of these, we have numerous spiritual blessings for which we can be thankful. One of the richest aspects of these spiritual blessings is our association with preachers of the Word of God around the world. When we thank our God during this season you dear brothers who are our comrades in arms will be a significant part of our gratitude. We are thankful for preachers for numerous reasons. Here are just a few.
