Christian Cheerfulness

Saying grace before carving the turkey at Thanksgiving dinner 8d10749v

“Foolish talking and jesting are not the ways in which Christian cheerfulness should express itself, but rather “giving of thanks” (Eph. 5:4). Religion is the source of joy and gladness, but its joy is expressed in a religious way, in thanksgiving and praise.”

~Charles Hodge
