Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee.

Luke 17:11

 

As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him.

Luke 17:12

 

They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!”

Luke 17:13

 

When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed.

Luke 17:14

 

One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice.

Luke 17:15

 

He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.

Luke 17:16

 

Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?”

Luke 17:17-18

 

Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”

Luke 17:19

 

What I want can rob me of what I have

 

Gratitude turns what we have into enough
