Becoming a disciple: do not forget to give thanks

Scripture – Luke 17:17

Then Jesus asked, Were not [all] ten cleansed? Where are the nine?

Observation

Ten lepers begged Jesus to heal them. He did. One came back to thank him.

Application

How often have I received answers to prayer or special blessings, only to forget to properly thank Jesus? This is a reminder to not only have a thankful heart at all times but to specifically thank Jesus EVERY time he blesses and answers prayer.

Prayer

Father, I repent of being self-focused and ungrateful. I choose to count my blessings and my answered prayers today. You are so good to me. You are so patient and forgiving. Thank you. Be glorified by my life today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
