In our story for today, Jesus says to the one leper who came back to give thanks, “Get up and go on your way; your faith has made you well.” Through Jesus’ words we realize that the man is well not because his physical ailment was healed but because his faith allowed him to give thanks. So too, our faith gives us perspective in the midst of all of life’s circumstances, so that this goodness outweighs it all, allowing us to give thanks, and through it all, be well.

Luke 17:11-19

Thankfulness Through Faith
