Are We Pilgrims?

Are We Pilgrims?

Do we as Christians in America appreciate our blessings or do we often feel entitled to them. The Mayflower Christians in 1621, as they sat anchored in Provincetown Harbor, desired to seek God’s will and their spirit of thanksgiving was strong.

Andree Seu, in an article for World magazine, writes about who the pilgrims were, and challenges us today to have the same spirit.  

“[they] ‘acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth’ and made it clear ‘that they are seeking a homeland,’ that they ‘desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one’ (Hebrews 11:13-16)…The history books speak truer than they know to call them ‘Pilgrims.’ The pilgrim heart is known by the quality of thanksgiving. But when the Lord returns, will He yet find their like in the land?”

As we approach Thanksgiving, we should remember we are all pilgrims, and may we always be found to be grateful and thankful for the Lord’s blessings in our lives.

CLS Prayer

Dear God, Thank you for the many blessings in my life. Please remind me to have a heart of thanksgiving every day, not just once a year, and to remember that all I have is yours. Amen.
