It’s an Attitude of Gratitude

Luke 17:11-19, “Now on His way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. As He was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met Him. They stood at a distance  and called out in a loud voice, ‘Jesus, Master, have pity on us!’  When He saw them, He said, ‘Go, show yourselves to the priests.’ And as they went, they were cleansed. One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked Him—and he was a Samaritan. Jesus asked, ‘Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?  Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?’  Then He said to him, ‘Rise and go; your faith has made you well.’”

  1. Their condition was so horrific these lepers didn’t ask Jesus to heal them—they asked for ___________________________.
  2. The main point: Gratitude really is a __________________.
  3. Having faith in God isn’t the same as ____________ to God.

Deuteronomy 8:17-18, ”You may say to yourself, ‘My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.’ But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms His covenant, which He swore to your ancestors, as it is today.”
