Thanksgiving is a gathering day for family, food and fun. Those who are close assume they may be in the same place at a certain time. Relatives farther away look forward to reuniting with their family or friends around a bountiful table.

Most of us are busy on this holiday set aside for gratefulness. But besides being thankful, I urge you to share your bounty with others.

Not just sharing your food with relatives, or your money dropped in a Salvation Army bucket. I’m talking about your talents, your time, a good attitude, or even a smile.

Anxiety in a person’s heart weighs him down,
but an encouraging word brings him joy.1

Be thankful while you’re enjoying family, food and fun.

And don’t forget to share a smile or even an encouraging word with those you meet.

1-Proverbs 12:25 [NET]
