Jesus expects a Thank-You!

Jesus expected that one leper to say thank-you!

Luke 17:18

Why did only one cleansed leper return to thank Jesus? The following are nine suggested reasons why the nine did not return:

One waited to see if the cure was real.

One waited to see if it would last.

One said he would see Jesus later.

One decided that he had never had leprosy.

One said he would have gotten well anyway.

One gave the glory to the priests.

One said, “O, well, Jesus didn’t really do anything.”

One said, “Any rabbi could have done it.”

One said, “I was already much improved.”

Luke 17:18

Has no one returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?

What are you thankful for today?
