Evening: Psalm 47, 48; Luke 17:11-19
Ten lepers are healed when they encounter Jesus, but only one of them comes back to him to give thanks. Jesus asks where the others are. He wonders why they did not also come back to give thanks. Then he says to the one who did show gratitude: “Go your way, your faith has made you well.” You get the feeling that faith makes you well in more than physical ways … as if gratitude is itself a sign of wellness … as if to be well is to live gratefully.
