Who is it you're giving thanks to?

At this time of year, we hear a lot about the things we should be thankful for, such as family, good health, financial resources and the things we need that they buy. It is important to give thanks for the blessings of life that we receive. But there is another question that needs to be answered: Who is the recipient of our thanks?

Live by the message from Heaven

The God of creation did not just create man and leave him to his own devices. God speaks to man so man can know what God desires of him. The way God speaks to man has changed thorough the centuries of time.

Do you listen to what God says?

Many years ago, my wife and I moved away to New Orleans to go to school. We were both in our early 20s, having been married only a year and a half. We were scared and excited, all at the same time. I imagine that our parents (both sets) were more frightened than excited.

Column: Observe World AIDS Day

Next Wednesday, Dec. 1, is World AIDS Day. It would be great if we could say that the threat of HIV and AIDS is over, but that isn't the case in the United States and in many other less developed countries. AIDS/HIV remains an enormous health-care problem. It is present in every corner of the world, infecting more than 40 million men, women and children today. Approximately 95 percent of all AIDS cases occur in the world's poorest countries, such as sub-Saharan Africa.

Always love thy neighbor as thyself

"Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets" (Matt. 22:36-40).

Take time to give thanks

We are now entering the holiday season, which traditionally kicks off when we celebrate Thanksgiving. I feel we should remind ourselves of the importance of this time of giving thanks.

As we observe and enjoy the benefits of this great nation, we can only say thanks to the one who provides us with such bountiful blessings.
