verse 17: Jesus asked, “We’re not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?”
Only one of the men healed of leprosy came back to thank Jesus. I can’t pretend to know what was in their minds. Not much, I guess. Certainly not appropriate thankfulness. One man came back and thanked Jesus. He was probably the one who felt least “deserving” in the group. He knew a beautiful gift when it was presented to him. It was free of charge, no strings attached. He went to the source, and thanked Him. May I recognize and be thankful for all of God’s gifts.
Holy, holy, holy Lord, you are my God and you have given me all I have and all I ever will have. I am so thankful. Help me to find ways, every day, to show how thankful I am. Amen
