The Power of Gratitude, Thankfulness and Appreciation pt. 3
The 10 Lepers
The 10 Lepers
Luke 17:11-19 “Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan. So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.””
Who helped you find Jesus?
Who has had the greatest impact on modeling Jesus to you?
Who serves you the most?
Who encourages you the most?
Who do you call when you need to talk to someone or need help?
Who has been there for you when others were not?
Who has loved you, despite your flaws or differences?
Ask Holy Spirit to show you who you have taken for granted.
Make time to go tell them about what it means to them!
Ask Holy Spirit how you can show appreciation to them!
A hard heart can keep you from showing appreciation.
Self-pity will keep you
Don’t wait until a person is gone before you appreciate their value!
