The cornucopia pictured here is also known as the horn of plenty. It displays the abundance of harvest. It is filled with fruit, vegetables, nuts and grains and one can’t help but be thankful for all God provides.
With Thanksgiving upon us, I am reminded of another type of harvest written about in the Bible. ‘The Harvest is the end of the Age…(Matthew 13 : 39 NIV)
One of the songs of Thanksgiving in our church hymnal is “Come Ye Thankful People, Come” The second verse of this song is,
“All the world is God’s own field, fruit unto to His praise to yield; wheat and tares together sown, Unto joy or sorrow grown.
First the blade and then the ear, Then the full corn shall appear. Lord of harvest, grant that we Whole-some grain and pure may be.”
The third verse continues: “For the Lord our God shall come, and shall take His harvest home;
From His field shall in that day All offences purged away;
Give His angels charge at last In the fire the tares to cast;
But the fruitful ears to store In His garner evermore.”
I’m looking forward to a Horn of Plenty Harvest and that I will be able to thank God for taking me home.
How about you? Are you looking forward to an abundant Harvest?
