Ellen White’s: Thanksgiving TOP 10
Ellen G. White said a few things about Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the holidays in general. Inspired by the writings of Ellen White, below is Bonder’s Top 10 list in regards to Thanksgiving and the holiday season.
In the meantime, GO Tofurky!!!
10. Thanksgiving shouldn’t be patterned after the world in the indulgence of secular amusements, pleasures, and revelry (examples mentioned: horse races, gambling, smoking, and drunkenness).
9. The focus of gift-giving shouldn’t be centered upon giving to those from whom we expect to receive. Hmmm…
8. Holidays should be observed, especially if you have children. Make holidays, she says, as “interesting as possible;” and also “happy” and “pleasurable.” Failure to do so may bring dissatisfaction to children.
7. Don’t be lazy! Make the holiday season worthwhile. Do something positive!
