A Lesson of Gratitude
“As He entered the village, ten lepers stood at a distance crying out, ‘Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!’ He looked at them and said, ‘Go show yourselves to the priests.’ And as they went, their leprosy disappeared.
One of them, when he saw that he was healed, came back to Jesus shouting, ‘Praise God, I am healed!” He fell to his face down on the ground at Jesus’ feet, thanking him for what he had done.”
Luke 17 : 11 – 19
Gratitude is a wonderful and positive attitude. How can our lives have meaning if we do not count our blessings and give thanks to the one who blessed us?
When we wake up in the mornings, we have more than enough to be grateful for, because that in itself is a wonderful blessing. Yes, the day may not go the way you want, but something did go right. Jesus healed 10 lepers and only one came back to him to give thanks… ONE! There is so much He does for us and that others around us do, but do we take the time to say ‘Thank You’ and really mean it?
Let this be our lesson for today, gratitude. Say ‘Thank you’ when someone does something for you, helps you or is kind to you. Give God thanks for all your blessings and speak a positive attitude unto His people. You are blessed beyond measures…always remember that.
