If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 

One of them, when he saw that he was healed, came back to Jesus, shouting, “Praise God!” He fell to the ground at Jesus’ feet, thanking him for what he had done. This man was a Samaritan.

—Luke 17:15-16

In Luke 17 we find the story of some men who had a lot to give thanks for. They were miraculously touched by Jesus. Complete outcasts, they were the very scourge of society. These men had leprosy, and at that time in history, you couldn’t get any lower. They were forbidden to have contact with anyone who didn’t have that incurable disease. They lived isolated, miserable, and lonely lives.

Yet these ten men called out to Jesus and asked for His healing touch . . . and Jesus gave it to them. However, only one of them took time to return and give thanks. The Bible tells us this man was a Samaritan. That may not mean a lot to us today, but in those days, Jews and Samaritans had no dealings with each other. The Jews looked down on the Samaritans. However, it wasn’t one of the sons of Abraham who came back to give thanks; it was a Samaritan.

Not only did this man come back and give thanks, but verses 15 and 16 tell us that he “came back to Jesus, shouting, ‘Praise God!’ He fell to the ground at Jesus’ feet, thanking him for what he had done. This man was a Samaritan.” The term shouting used here is translated from the same Greek words that form our word megaphone. The Samaritan was a megaphone of praise.

This caused Jesus to ask a question: “Didn’t I heal ten men? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” (Luke 17:17–18).

In effect, the Lord is still asking this question today. Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give praise to God?

There is so much to give thanks for. Have you remembered to thank Him?
