Along with their fellowship offering of thanksgiving they are to present an offering with thick loaves of bread made with yeast. They are to bring one of each kind as an offering, a contribution to the Lord ; it belongs to the priest who splashes the blood of the fellowship offering against the altar. The meat of their fellowship offering of thanksgiving must be eaten on the day it is offered; they must leave none of it till morning.
-Several nations like the USA, Canada and Liberia have dedicated national celebration holidays to offer their thanksgiving to God for various benefits. The church has also provided a platform for congregants to offer their thanksgiving to the Lord in form of praise and gifts during mass and church service. This is foundational and stems from the Old Testament. Leavened bread and meat were offered to the Lord as thanksgiving sacrifice; and the priest would smear blood on the offering to sanctify it. In the same manner; Jesus offering Himself on the cross as the propitiation for our sins and calls us to offer our bodies as pleasing sacrifices; holy and acceptable to Him; which is true and proper worship (Rom 12:1). We are called to offer our bodies in holiness through the cleaning by the blood of Jesus; as sacrifices of thanksgiving producing pleasing aroma to God.
