Be Thankful

Posted on: 7-15-112011

One of the stories in the Bible is about Jesus cleansing ten lepers. Each of them asked Jesus to have mercy on them, but only one of them took the time to thank Him when He answered their plea. Each of the ten received physical healing, but nine just went on their merry way without so much as a thank you. We tend to read that and think badly of the nine, but when we’re honest with ourself, aren’t we a little more like the nine than the one? Don’t we tend to receive so much from the Lord, but thank Him for very little? I know I can speak for myself…I usually take all of the blessings He lavishes on me for granted. I need to learn to be much more like the one who went back to thank Him! I need to learn to have a grateful heart.

“And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks.” Luke 17:15-16
