Read Luke 17:11-19


Read Luke 17:11-19

11 As Jesus made his way to Jerusalem, he went along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 12He was going into a village when he was met by ten men suffering from a dreaded skin disease. They stood at a distance 13and shouted, “Jesus! Master! Take pity on us!”
14 Jesus saw them and said to them, “Go and let the priests examine you.” On the way they were made clean.t 15When one of them saw that he was healed, he came back, praising God in a loud voice. 16He threw himself to the ground at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. The man was a Samaritan. 17Jesus said, “There were ten men who were healed; where are the other nine? 18Why is this foreigner the only one who came back to give thanks to God?” 19And Jesus said to him, “Get up and go; your faith has made you well.”


Jesus heals 10 lepers.  One comes back to give thanks.  A foreigner.  Only after he has come to give thanks Jesus says: "Your faith has made you well."  Wellness means knowing where your healing comes from.


Lord keep me mindful of where all my gifts come from.
