Be thankful

When Jesus healed ten lepers, one lesson stands out: Jesus wants us to express thanks to God for the gifts we receive.

Another important lesson is more hidden. The ten lepers did not receive what they wanted until they started doing what Jesus told them to do. The evidence that we're on the right path sometimes comes after we start down the path, not before.

If you want to reflect more on this topic, watch the video below and see Psalm 95:1-3, Ephesians 5:18b-20 and Luke 17:12-19.

God, help us to believe you, even when the truth of what you say is not yet apparent in our lives. Thank you. Amen.
