Pondering the Scriptures Sunday #6

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, this week's scripture is found in Luke 17: 11-19, the story of the Ten Lepers.

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

Someone has said that an ungrateful man is like a hog under a tree eating apples and never looking up to see where they come from. How often do we look up to see where our blessings come from?  It is easy to take for granted the abundance of blessings in our lives.  It is easier yet to forget to express gratitude for them. 

I am thankful for my growing relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ through reading the scriptures.  There, I learn how to be happy.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving my dear readers.  Associating with you is certainly on my long list of TBT (to be thankful) list.  ~May the spirit of attitude of gratitude be with us often.
