V. margin). Pa. L:23. Thanksgiving, then. Is not only of value in Itself, but it makes It possible for God to do what He Is all the time willing to do bring us salvation, deliverance. It prepares a way for God to work. Let ns try and find out what the Psalmist means by the sacrifice of thanksgiving which glorifies God. He has already In very dramatic words said that It Is not the usual animal sacrifices which constitute the sacrifice of thanksgiving. "For every beast of the forest is mine and the cattle npon a thousand hills. If I were hungry I would not tell thee ; for the world is mine and the fulness thereof. Will I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats T Offer nnto God tbanksgiv- tag"' (verses 10-14). And with us It Is something deeper than our outward gifts God wants. So many Imagine they are doing God a favor by contributing ito His work, or giving subscrip tions, often very generous ones, to i this or that If It is not in these outward things that the true sacrl flee of rjralse consists, what is it? Its essence Is the spirit of glad ! acceptance of God's gracious deal ings with ns. The key of life is to be found in that attitude. This is the sacrifice of thanksgiving. In stead of railing at fate, we see behind things a loving Father, at ! times dealing severely with His children, but always dealing lov ingly. "Whom the Lord lovetb He chasteneth, and scourgeth every 'son whom He recelveth." Glad Acceptance of His Will. Ro, confident in God's way, Paul I and Silas could sing in the inner imost prison. The groups of de Ifenseless men and women In Nero's i arena coming out of great tribula tion, could sing, while the wild 'beasts were being loosened upon them. j As Madam Guyon In jail puts It In "The Prison of the Lord": ' A little bird I am, Bhut from the fields of air; I And In my cage I sit and sing ' To Him who placed me there; ! Well pleased a prisoner to be. iThls Is not merely a grudging ac 'ceptance of God's way, but it is 'with the heart and glorifies God. ! We need to be sure that the bur den laid on us Is of God, and not of our own negligence or folly, and iwe need ever to be seeking health land strength, the normal condition iordalned for us of Ood. Bnt when, Ibeyond our controlling or erecting, grievous limitations constrict us, Iwe do well to glorify God In the 'joyous spirit of Thanksgiving. 1 Attitude of Glorifying God. I It is not only In trials that 'thanksgiving should be rendered. ; There is the stress and strain of a task which taxes our powers, those 'powers which need continual exer cise to make them grow. We glor ify God bs we rejoice Ui that He has called us to measure ourselves against real tasks. We honor God when we can thank Him for the Hill Difficulty. The sacrifice of thanksgiving, then, is an attitude to life and to God. It Is an attitude that glorifies God since it gives Him credit for working sensibly, with wisdom, and according to gome plan. Wa ao often deny to God the foresight and wisdom we credit ourselves with. We should or should not do this or that because of some great er plan we have In mind. Yet when God brings things upon us, the full purport of which we cannot grasp, we so often plaintively lament His shortness of vision. ' He bas spoilt our plans md we forget His grand er plan, sv Those who can rejoice with thanksgivings of heart for whatever He sends glorify God in recognizing His Intelligent purpose. Not only does the sacrifice of thanksgiving glorify Me, says God, but It prepares a way that I may show him the salvation of God. That Is if we have hearts that can give God credit for acting sensibly In His dealings with us, If we can thank him even when there appears to those who know not the Father's care, only cause for bitter repin ing, God can work out His will through ns and for us. God can show us His salvation, His way of deliverance and growth. We are in league with Him In His good will for us and for the world. Light Shines Most In Darkness. The heart that can sing In the dark Is assured of victory and de liverance. There was John Bunyan In Bedford jail. How thwarting it seemed to God's purposes for him as a preacher of the Gospel up and down the land. Shall he accept the Imprisonment for the sake of God's revelation of truth as be bas seen It? "But if nothing," he writes, "will do unless I make of my conscience a continual butchery and slaughter ship, unless, putting out my own eyes, I commit me to the blind to lead me, as I doubt not Is desired by some, I have determined, the Almighty God being my help and shield, yet to suffer, if frail life might continue so long, even till the moss shall grow on my eye brows, rather than thus to violate my faith and principles." And bis glad acceptance for the claim of God made it possible for God to ford of Massachusetts proclaimed a day of thanksgiving and prayer In 1621, the purpose being to thank Providence for a harvest that had been saved from marauding In dians only through eternal vigi lance and trusty rifles. George Washington Is credited with being the first President to proclaim a day of thanksgiving. The congress, in 1784, recommend ed that a day be set apart for prayerful expression of gratitude because of the return of peace. Washington again appointed such a day in 1789, after the Constitu tion bad been adopted. Still anoth er period of rejoicing and prayer was observed In 1795, based on the many benefits derived from a good harvest and growing prosperity. The last Thursday in November was the generally accepted day for this expression of gratitude, and President Madison followed Wash ington's example in proclaiming a day of thanksgiving. Then the cus tom died out, and was not renewed until President Lincoln, 1863, called on the nation to bow before God In humbleness and prayer. The Civil war then was at its height Every President since Lincoln has con tinued to proclaim the last Thurs day In November as Thanksgiving day, and the occasion is observed In metropolis and countryside alike, although the manner of observ ance may be vastly different In the rural districts, particular ly, In the West, Middle West and South, many of the customs of the forefathers still prevail, although the advent of the automobile bas brought great changes.
