Give Him Thanks (Luke 17:11-19)Bro. Mike Meade, February 11, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
There is something that each and every one of us could give to God each and every day, and yet we all withhold it from Him; gratitude.
We typically only think of giving thanks to God during the fall Thanksgiving season. Why is that? Why can't we carry an attitude of gratitude throughout the year? It's not an emotion only intended for a season.
In the book of Luke we find the story of the ten lepers who were cleansed of their condition. Yet only one of them returned to the Lord to give thanks. Are you in the minority, giving Him thanks? Or do you find yourself in the majority of people who fail to do so?
Give Him Thanks today!

11And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.
