TAKING THE TIME TO GIVE THANKS
Ten lepers were healed by Jesus as he was passing through a village. They seemed to keep their distance as this was the expected behavior for the “unclean.” One of them however made a point of turning back towards Jesus, coming up to him giving him glory and thanks. His being made well impacted more than just his body. The other nine were happy to get healed but sadly missed out on the greater gift of meeting and knowing the Savior. As we give thanks is our focus on the gifts we receive or is our focus the Giver of those gifts… meeting Him, knowing Him, glorifying Him?
