Thanksgiving's Direction

Thanksgiving is given when one recognizes that they are a debtor to someone else.  They recognize that they have been a beneficiary of someone else's mercy or grace.  They recognize that they have received something that they did not earn or deserve.  Therefore, true thanksgiving must be directed towards an individual or individuals.  To give thanks without directing it to the person or persons who provided the blessings is truly an immoral thing to do.  It purposefully slights the one or ones that should be honored.  This is why God should be the primary recipient of our thanks for without His mercy and grace we would not have life and all the blessings that come with it.  This Thanksgiving let's honor the One that is due it.  Let's give Him our praise and our thanks!
