“Thank the Lord for What He Has Done”
Most of us would say we are thankful people.
However, do our lips agree with our minds?
Please read the following verses.
11 Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee.
12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance
13 and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!”
14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed.
15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice.
16 He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him — and he was a Samaritan.
17 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?
18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?”
19 Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”
In this account, I am sure all ten men would have been thankful. However, only one expresses his thanks.
When we are thankful to the Lord for what He has done, put it in words.
Proclaim to the Lord God that we are thankful.
Tell others about the great things the Lord God has done.
Do not be afraid to brag on the Lord God!
