This morning, I read the story of the healing of the ten leper’s Luke 17: 11-19. As Jesus entered into a village ten leper’s lifted up their voices and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And, it came to pass, they were all healed. However, only one of them turned back and with a loud voice glorified God. He fell down on his face at his feet giving thanks. Jesus said, ” Were there not ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Even though I have read this story many times, this morning I saw myself as one of the nine that fails to thank and glorify God for everything he does for me.
Dear Lord, Please forgive me for taking you for granted. Thank you for the small things that you bless me with each day; Waking me up in the morning, being healthy and pain free, hearing the birds sing, seeing the sunrise, and spending time with me. Help me to always be grateful, thankful, and never forget my next breathe is a gift from you. Amen
