Synopsis: Have you fallen into the trap of thinking that Thanksgiving is not for you if ... 1) you are not in the mood for it, 2) due to hardships and the pain of current or past circumstances you don't feel like, or 3) it is dependent upon favorable happenings and if conditions warrant it? Then here is hope and help from God's Word for you in this morning's message!
Synopsis: There are two perspectives on life - one oriented around self and this world; the other around God and the world to come.

With which of these two do you identify? How does your lifestyle answer that question? If the infinite God is not enough to satisfy you, then nothing finite can or ever will.
