Important Words...

In Luke 17, Jesus tells a story about ten men who were healed of leprosy. Only one of the men returned to say “thank you.” Every time I read that passage I ask myself, "Which of those men would I have been?"

I encourage you to make a list of ten people who have influenced you, and write each of them a note of thanks.
Your list might include:
  • Your mom or dad.
  • Your grandparents.
  • Your fifth grade teacher, your counselor at camp, or your youth minister.
  • Your friend who prays for you daily.
  • The author of some book that touched your life in a deep way.
  • Some person who said one thing that encouraged you when you needed it.
Who are a few of the people for whom you're thankful?
