As Jesus continued his journey to Jerusalem he traveled through Samaria and Galilee. As he was entering a village, ten lepers met him. They stood at a distance from him and raised their voice, saying, “Jesus, Master! Have pity on us!” And when he saw them, he said, “Go show yourselves to the priests.” As they were going they were cleansed. And one of them, realizing he had been healed, returned, glorifying God in a loud voice; and he fell at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. He was a Samaritan. Jesus said in reply, “Ten were cleansed, were they not? Where are the other nine? Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?” Then he said to him, “Stand up and go; your faith has saved you.”
How often do you give thanks to God for the healings and blessings He has given to you? Do you even realize how much He has done for you? Can you see past the things you want and do not get to see the miracles and blessings in your life? Take stock of your life and give thanks and praise to God. Do not be one of the nine.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I give you praise and thanksgiving for all you have done in my life. The miracles, the blessings the people that you have put in my path to help me on my journey to you. In Jesus’ precious and holy name, I say thank you Lord, Amen.
Rise up, O God, bring judgment to the earth.
