“…One of them, when he saw 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 (NIV)

Beloved, as you journey in your life this season, I have one question for you, how grateful are you to God? I want you to ponder on this question again and again. I know that for some people, it may seem strange but on a more serious note, you must have a genuine answer to this question. Why? Because you could be a Spirit filled, tongue talking believer and yet be ungrateful to God.

Today, you discover that there are far too many ungrateful believers who only see what is going wrong, but they never acknowledge the things God is doing. All you hear from them is complaints here and there. And in most cases, when they just want to cover up and make it look as though they are not complaining, they say things like ” Well, I can’t complain” or I don’t want to complain, let’s just accept the way things are” You see, statements like this, are a product of an ungrateful heart. A man who is truly grateful, does not see what is not working. He only sees the things that are working. In fact, that is all he talks about. Every time you come in contact with him, all you hear from him are the things God has done and how he is thrilled by the fact that God is doing such a thing for him.

So, as you journey in your Christian walk, it’s important to be genuinely grateful to the Lord. Let it show in your thoughts, actions and words. Let gratefulness become the environment that you carry. When people come in contact with you, let it be easily known that you are a grateful person. Remember the story of the ten leaders? The Bible said “…One of them, when he saw 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 (NIV). Did you see his attitude? You will know that this one was not only grateful for the healing, but he also actually values the healing he has received and that’s why he came back with a loud voice. So, as you journey in your Christian walk, be truly grateful, it can change your life.
