Luke 17:17 (NKJV)
So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine?
Be The One
Do you know the story of Jesus and the ten lepers? These ten lepers cried out to Jesus for healing and were miraculously healed of their terrible disease. But only one came back to say thank you. Ten miracles. One thank you.
The ratio probably hasn’t changed much over the years. A spirit of ingratitude rules our society. In fact the Bible tells us in 1 Timothy that one of the characteristics of the end times is that people will be ungrateful.
Imagine how you would feel if no one ever thanked you for your kind actions. And you cannot say it wouldn’t matter, other wise you wouldn’t have posted your kind actions on social media.
In the same way, God’s heart is broken when we do not thank Him for touching our lives with His love. In light of God’s magnificent grace, ingratitude is a grievous sin.
Don’t allow the spirit of ingratitude to sneak into your life. Be the one who, like the lone leper, returns to give thanks. Be the one who remembers to say, “Thank you Lord.”
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
