Returning for Thanks

Luke 17:17-19


Synopsis: To me, some of the most haunting words in the Gospels come from Luke 17:17 where Jesus asked, “Didn’t I heal ten men? Where are the other nine?”

        Gratitude is personal.  The crowd went on their way, but not this one.  They all received the miracle of healing, but he alone came back to give thanks to his healer. I am convinced that miracles do not make believers.  We all receive miracles in our lives.  Believers are the ones who return to give thanks to the one they believe “healed” them.

        The one returning leper wasn’t told to return to give thanks.  He didn’t have too.  I have to think he just want to.  What about you?  In your life, are you included in the nine or singled out with the one?


Scripture Text (NLT):  Luke 17:11-19
