Healing of Ten Men with Leprosy
11 On the way to Jerusalem Jesus was going through the region between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he entered a village, ten men with a skin disease approached him. Keeping their distance, 13 they called out, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” 14 When he saw them, he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were made clean. 15 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice. 16 He prostrated himself at Jesus’s feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan. 17 Then Jesus asked, “Were not ten made clean? So where are the other nine? 18 Did none of them return to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 Then he said to him, “Get up and go on your way; your faith has made you well.”
“Ingratitude is part and parcel of pride and self-centeredness,
a deep denial of how dependent we are on God and one another.
If we aren’t thankful, it’s because we don’t think we owe anyone anything.”
~ Tim Keller, the founder of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City
