I am reminded of the ten lepers in John’s Gospel. You know these ten, Jesus is on his way to Galilee when they spot him and begin to cry out for a healing. Our compassion filled Jesus grants this request and the ten rush off to present themselves to the priest. They will be announced clean and allowed to return to their families, their faith, and their lives. One stops in the midst of the joy, realizing both the source of the joy and the importance of gratitude, and returns to express both realizations to his new found Lord. Jesus asks where the other nine have gone, why they did not return to express praise and gratitude.
We did a little skit about the lepers at bible school and how only one PRAISED
and was Thankful for the healing.
I am afraid that I am often the other nine. I get so caught up in the goodness of a moment, the greatness of this life, and in that I forget to return to the Source and express the gratitude that is due him.
God, forgive me for those times. Allow me to express gratitude for all that is around me…
