DCLM Daily Manna Devotional October 10, 2017
Topic: Height of Ingratitude
Bible Text: Luke 17:11-19
Key Verse: “And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger” (Luke 17:17,18).
MESSAGE: Ancient Israel had no answer to the scourge of certain diseases, especially the disease of leprosy. Medical science offered little help in combating this dreaded condition which kept its victims away from decent society. There was no relief except by divine intervention.
DCLM Daily Manna Devotional Messages: God: A Righteous Judge
Jesus told the ten lepers: “Go shew yourselves unto the priests”. This was because after a leper was cleansed of the disease, he was to present himself to a priest to be confirmed clean. Now on their way to the priest, they were cleansed. Overwhelmed by joy at this discovery, one of them turned back and came to Christ to give glory to God. The rest went away with their healing and forgot the Healer. It is good to note that the one who went back was a Samaritan whose nation the Jews regarded as sinful.
Believers are under obligation to return thanks to God for all His benefits and blessings. While one leper was grateful for his healing, the others showed no such appreciation. Their ingratitude pictures how many people often forget all that God bestows upon them both spiritually and physically only to continue to ask for more.
DCLM Daily Manna Devotional Messages: Order And Decency
How often do you say: ‘Thank you, Jesus’. And as it is in the spiritual, so it is in the physical; we must show appreciation for the good people do unto us. An ungrateful “believer” is a blight to the Christian faith. We need to constantly show appreciation to God for His manifold blessings in our lives!
Thought for the day: An ungrateful heart is like a greedy grabber.
