Jesus and the Ungrateful (3 of 6)
Series: Luke - Encounters with Jesus
Heart of Jesus
Heart of Ungrateful
11 On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance 13 and lifted up their voices, saying, ‘‘Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.’’ 14 When he saw them he said to them, ‘‘Go and show yourselves to the priests.’’ And as they went they were cleansed. 15 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; 16 and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. 17 Then Jesus answered, ‘‘Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?’’ 19 And he said to him, ‘‘Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.’’
This is God’s word
We are looking at 8 encounters through the book of Luke that different people or groups of people had with Jesus throughout his earthly ministry, and in each of these stories we are seeing Jesus interact with different kinds of people, or different emotions that all people experience… We have looked at doubt, and fear, and busyness, but today we are going to look at something that I think all of us struggle with to some degree and that is gratitude or ingratitude.
You know to meet a grateful person is the most wonderful thing, to find someone who is grateful, who realizes what they have, well it is just good to be around that person.
But conversely to meet an ungrateful person is a lousy thing, and people are ungrateful when they are more focused on what they don’t have, then they are on what they do have.
But I sit in a room of men and women with college degrees you know how few people on earth have a college degree. Only 6%, and many of your have gone to American colleges in universities which are some of the best on earth.
