Be thankful for what you have. Your life, no matter how bad you think it is, is someone else’s fairy tale. (Wale Ayeni, investment advisor)

We are following the example of the Pilgrims, who “…made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving” (H. U. Westermayer). So, in the midst of the abundance that most of us enjoy, we should be grateful but also find ways to encourage the less fortunate.

The purpose of riches: “You will be made rich . . .  so that you can be generous on every occasion” (2 Corinthians 9:11).
