A Thankful Heart
On this day of Thanksgiving, I am thinking of the
Story of the 10 Lepers from the Bible Luke 17
¶And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:
And they lifted up
voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
And when he saw
he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
And fell down on
face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where
There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.
I don't want to be like the nine, totally self absorbed and not expressing gratitude for the help I am given. Happy Thanksgiving!
