And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,  And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.

While pondering what to write this morning, I was led to revisit one of our Sunday school lessons that talked about An Attitude of Gratitude. Today’s passage of scripture focuses on the ten lepers that Jesus healed, but only one returned to tell Jesus, thank You for healing my body.


The one returning Leper expressed his gratitude for Jesus having mercy upon him and his companions as they stood afar off, crying out to Jesus for healing. When Jesus answered their plea for help, the nine when on their merry way as if it was Jesus’ duty to come to their rescue. Is this our attitude of the nine who did not say Thank You Jesus for love, grace, and mercy? Are we taking Jesus’ compassionate care for granted, or are we expressing an attitude of gratitude that will determine our altitude in life? 


A simple thank you will take us far in this life as it tells God I think You for waking me this morning. You didn’t have to, but You did. Thank You for all that You do in my life, especially providing salvation through my faith in Your Son Jesus Christ. Our attitude of thankfulness makes a significant impact in the eyes of God and the world because it manifests the likeness of Christ, our Lord, and Savior.


Therefore, let our positive attitudes cause us to soar like an eagle.
