It’s Thanksgiving Day, a time when we reflect on all of the things we’re grateful for. Like having the freedom to dangle prepositions because it’s my blog and not an academic paper. I could write about the typical problems with consumerism and how much we take for granted, but there are a thousand blogs out there like that by now. And I’m grateful for that, because my wretched heart needs to be reminded of that constantly. But there’s a deeper message that lies behind our being grateful, and a deeper reason why so many find gratitude difficult in this season.
