The Healed Leper

Tonight as I was reading I read the story of the Ten Lepers in Luke 17:11-19.  This is a story that I believe we can all relate to but are we like the one?  We read in this passage that Jesus healed ten lepers but only one came back to give him thanks.  I am sure the other nine were glad to be healed but they did not come back and we read that Jesus said to him “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine?  18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”  

This reminds me that no matter how busy I am, I should never be too busy to stop and praise God for everyone of His blessings.   I am thankful for so many things; tonight I want to say thank you God for healing me emotionally and providing for our every need even we don’t realize we have a need.  I was reminded of how we want our children to have manners, be respectful and remember to say please and thank you but often we forget our own “rules” when it comes to our Father God, creator of the entire world.  I know I want to be the one that remembers to praise God and be thankful; how about you?  Blessings from one healed leper to another.
