Recipe for Thanksgiving

This week we will be completing our series on gratefulness by looking at several Bible passages. As we look around us this Thanksgiving season, we may see those who have more than us, or those who have been more fortunate. Comparison is a trap that fosters dissatisfaction. Instead, we need to focus on God and […]
