Giving Thanks

By Rev. James Slopsema

We live in a time of great prosperity. The standard of living in the U.S. far exceeds any other nation, past or present.

With this great prosperity has come an alarming increase in wickedness in our land. The principle here is that the more the Lord gives a wicked nation, the more they have with which to sin, so that they abound more and more in sin. The Word of God before us speaks of some of the wickedness that prevails in our land—fornication, uncleanness, covetousness, filthiness, foolish talking, jesting.

And there is very little giving of thanks to the Lord.
