Thanksgiving: What do Peace, Wisdom, and Work Have to Do With It?

My new article is up at Homemaker’s Challenge! Here’s a teaser …

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.” Colossians 3:15-17

We all spend more time than usual thinking about thankfulness during this fall season. In Florida, we’re all grateful for the amazing gift of being able to spend more than five minutes outside without perspiring! Decorating with glittered pumpkins, brightly hued silk leaves and orange-and-brown-plaid tablecloths serves to put us in a fall-y frame of mind beginning in September, even though the weather mocks us until November at least.

Though thanksgiving is primary in our thoughts, it’s not very often that peace, wisdom and work are considered alongside it.  Yet those are the very connections Paul makes in this passage in Colossians.
