Remember the lepers ~ B
As Jesus entered a village, ten men stood at a distance who had leprosy and met Him. They called out to Jesus, "Jesus, Master, have pity on us." (Luke 17:12-13)
Jesus instructed this wayside troupe to leave and enter town. All ten were healed as ancient dust furled around their feet.
Ten men were healed, but only one said 'thanks'. And, he was very unpopular as a Samaritan.
One of them, realising he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus' feet and thanked Him - and he was a Samaritan. (Luke 17:15-16)
Only one leper saw grace. The least acceptable.
Jesus does not despise those in their time of misfortune or need. Nor does He see nationality.
Is it not the most rejected who is the most able and the most ready to perceive grace?
The Last Word:
We are quick to pray, but slow to praise. We can want the gift, but not the giver. (Warren Wiersbe)
