On Thanksgiving Day, let us not forget that many ill-fated people will not have the luxury of a warm meal in the company of their family. Those abandoned souls would give anything to be in your shoes. Instead, they suffer from loneliness, depression, and hunger with a heavy heart.
Before you begin your Thanksgiving meal, say a little prayer of thanks to the Almighty, who has blessed you with the gift of love. If possible, reach out to at least one poor person and give generously. Read these Thanksgiving quotes from the Bible and get inspired to work for the needy.
