Within Paul’s message to the “religious” Athenians in first century Athens, we discover a truth that perhaps at first alarms us but properly understood, is good news. That truth is that we are “unnecessary,”
not meaning worthless or irrelevant but in another sense. What we will come to see through Paul’s message is that God is always the “giver” and that he loves us and wants us to enter into fellowship with him. That is a truth that will fill our hearts with gratitude both today as we celebrate Thanksgiving, and everyday!
