TLP Living: 11/19/18

Next week I hope to elaborate on the thoughts that Don Merrit expresses in this post. Why? From time to time when I advocate for limited goverment my opponents accuse me of being against government or cynicism. Neither is true. I just think my opponents are confused about the source of all our blessings.

Thanksgiving TReflections

Thanksgiving has been a central idea in American history and culture, even before there was an America.  Of course, all Americans have learned about the first Thanksgiving back in 1621 with the Pilgrims and the Indians, but there’s much more in our heritage that relates.  From the time of our first President, George Washington, we have had proclamations of Thanksgiving.  Abraham Lincoln had one that was quite famous in 1863, and Thanksgiving became a national holiday in the years that followed.

I know that many today might want to argue this, but I think that this notion of Thanksgiving has had a profound effect on our Nation.  Here’s why:  Giving thanks both as an individual and as a Nation requires humility and a recognition that there is an Authority greater than any human authority.  For the leader of a Nation to ask the people to pause to thank…

  1. Tom,

    Thanksgiving Day is a great reminder for people to reflect thoughts, similar to an aurora or clear view of stars on a dark night, remind us to wonder who to thank for blessings received. Whether it be family. friends, community, comforts, or luck.

    Sadly, many quickly forget the day after and return to the reality of work, duties, obligations, tasks, etc. etc..

    That is unless they have acquired the knowledge to understand the basic precepts of Bible Wisdom Verses.

    Sadly, in the USA, Government serves to be a reminder of the aurora only one day a year.
    Church Services once a week, only if attended.

    Religious schools used to remind children every day before they became unaffordable.
    When religious schooled children grew up and became parents, they reminded their children every night to pray before going to bed.

    Yet, the aurora and stars still appear every night to remind people to wonder, is there someone who they should give thanks.

    That is why religion will always survive even though there will be humans who try to dim or explain the aurora is not of Gods will and making.

    And during those times, history has recorded the worse of human follies, over and over again.

    When will we humans wise up and read a Bible to remind them to give thanks to their Creator every waking moment, in good times and bad times in our short lifespans on earth?

    Regards and good will blogging.

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
