Replace the Turkeys

Thanksgiving day in America pays tribute to the great suffering of millions of turkeys at factory farms and to their funeral at our dinner tables. The price tags for it and other special holidays are not just in the cost of turkeys, chickens, ducks, goats, pigs, or cattle, but in currencies far more valuable. When we gather over the main dish of our holidays, let’s replace our turkeys with a different currency: gentleness in place of provocation; peace for war, moderation for waste, and love for hate. “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
