One of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks.

Luke 17:15-16

Luke 17:11-19



Last spring, a dog became stranded in the water at the bottom of a canal in Romania. A passerby, seeing the pooch whimpering and trying to climb to safety, scaled down the wall, jumped into the water, pulled the dog out by the scruff of its neck, and carried it back up to dry land. The dog ran away and shook itself; but then it quickly returned, ran to its rescuer, and showered the man with lots of nuzzles and licks. The video of the grateful canine became a sensation.

Sometimes we can learn a lot from our four-footed friends. Jesus once healed ten lepers, but only one came back with thanksgiving—and he was a Samaritan. Everyone who is in Christ has been rescued. We’ve been healed. We’re the most blessed people on earth. Some days may be harder than others, and some seasons of life might be tumultuous. But gratitude isn’t situational. It isn’t based on what we have or where we are, but on our relationship with the God who pulled us out of deep waters, set our feet on a rock, and put a new song of praise in our mouths.

When I praise Him, He is exalted in my life, and when He is exalted, I am happy and whole.1

In her song "Strangeness of the Day," singer-songwriter Kate Campbell contemplates some of the "miracles [that] happen around everywhere:" When I'm singing in this microphone My voice comes out over there Somehow my words are carried By electrons through the air.
