Greetings in Christ!
We are looking forward to a wonderful service the Sunday before Thanksgiving as we take time to appreciate and express our thanks to the Lord for His bountiful blessings in our lives.
I’m reminded a bit about a tremendous story in the Bible Luke 17:11-19 where Jesus healed 10 lepers. Yet, while 9 of the lepers went their way rejoicing in their healing, only 1 of them in fact turned around to go back to express his thanks to the Lord for the miracle that had taken place in his life.
Imagine that! 1 out of 10 said thank you! We are often so quick to correct and instruct our children when it comes to the importance of saying “thank you”, but you and I are challenged on a weekly basis, and yes, even daily to express our love and appreciation to the Lord.
