How to Turn Thanksgiving into Thanks-living - I

November 21, 2023

According to the late Pastor Adrian Rogers, “There is no other sin quite like the sin of ingratitude.” On today’s classic edition of Family Talk, we’ll hear a special message from Pastor Rogers on the word “sacrifice,” and how it is used in Scripture. Psalm 107:21-22 states, “Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for mankind. Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of His works with songs of joy.” Be reminded that we must not take the Word of God lightly! We need to be grateful for all we have, especially as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving Day here in America.
