As a child, I recall praying when I was in trouble or had a major test. If God had caller ID, He would’ve seen my number repeatedly. The problem is I can’t recall thanking Him as much as I ask, which is an issue because He always gives more than requested. In today’s passage, Jesus healed ten lepers yet only one returned to thank Him. My goal is to be like that one leper; asking is easy but being grateful takes effort.
One of them, when he saw that he was healed, came back to Jesus, shouting, “Praise God!” (Luke 17:15 NLT)
