Jesus asked, “Didn’t I heal ten men? Where are the other nine?
Luke 17:17 (NLT)
It is so easy to take God’s goodness for granted. In today’s passage, there were ten lepers who cried out to Jesus, “Master, have mercy on us!” Jesus told them, “Go show yourselves to the priests.” As they went on their way they were all cleansed of their leprosy, but only one of them came back to Jesus and thanked Him. Jesus then asked a very indicting question, “Didn’t I heal ten men? Where are the other nine?” It would be easy to judge the nine lepers, but what about us? There has been so much goodness in our life. How often have we failed to run back to Jesus and thank Him? We would judge a leper who was healed for not coming back to Jesus, but what about those of us who have never been sick? How many days have we been without food or shelter? How many times have we been destitute and all alone? Hasn’t God has been so good to us? Today, examine your life. What have you forgot to thank Jesus for? It’s not too late. Bring Him your praise and thanksgiving for all He has done for you.
Father, thank You for all You have done for me. Forgive me for my lack of gratefulness. I praise You for Your grace and mercy in my life. In Jesus’ name.
