Next week we have Thanksgiving and so it’s very appropriate that we study a little bit about an attitude of thankfulness, having gratitude before the Lord, having a gracious, thankful attitude which is so important. I want to sort of make it very clear to us, how important it is to have and attitude of thankfulness, being thankful before the Lord and also before others.
Luke 17:11, if you have your Bible please read with me, I’ll read in Spanish. Summarizing for those who don’t have the Bible, it says that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem and He was going between Samaria and Galilee when he entered a village, 10 men who had leprosy came close to him, but far enough to stay away according to the law, and they stood at a distance and they raised their voice saying: Jesus, master have mercy upon us. And when He saw them He said: Go and show yourselves to the priests. And it happened that as they went they were cleansed and then one of them, seeing that he had been healed, returned glorifying God in a great voice and he bowed and placed his face upon the earth and he gave thanks to Jesus and this man was a Samaritan and Jesus answering said: Weren’t there 10 who were cleansed and the other 9 where are they? There was no one else to return and give glory to God except for this stranger? And he said: Rise, go, your faith has made you whole, your faith has saved you.
