“And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks…” (Luke 17:15-16, Holy Bible King James Version)
Ten lepers stood far away from Jesus and cried out for mercy. Jesus instructed them to go and show themselves to the Jewish priest as was customary when leprosy was cleansed. All were healed on the way but only one returned to give Jesus thanks. He had the attitude of gratitude.
Prayer: Jesus, I am so thankful that You are the same now as when You spoke to the ten lepers. Your salvation, healing and other miracles are available for me today as they were then. Like the grateful leper, I have the attitude of gratitude for the changes You have made in my life. Thank You for Your special touch. Amen.
