A Cornucopia: Horn of Plenty
It’s that time of year when we see that strange looking basket with fruits in it. Our children will bring home cut outs and colored pages of it. A cornucopia. It means horn of plenty. Abundance. Inside it is filled with overflowing fruit. This holiday season I think of our Horn of Salvation…Jesus Christ (Luke 1:69; Psalm 18:2) Because of Him we can live lives of abundance (2 Corinthians 9:8). Abundant lives so that we can abound in every good work, overflowing with fruit! During this Thanksgiving season, as we give praise and thanks for what we have, we should also examine ourselves and ask God, “Am I overflowing with fruit?” Even a child is known by his fruit whether it is good or bad. Are we abiding in Him–the Horn of Salvation? Abiding in Him bears much fruit! Maybe you need pruning…I’m always in need of it. I don’t necessarily like the process but I know it’s for my own good. During all the hustle and bustle I pray you’ll get with God and take inventory! Get rid of what shouldn’t be there and make room for sweet fruit! Happy Thanksgiving, friends! Be safe and enjoy the time with family and friends!
