“Jesus asked the man, ‘Wasn’t there 10 men who were healed? Where are the other 9? Is this foreigner the only man to return and praise God?’ Jesus then told him to rise and go on his way. He told him that his faith has made him well”.
“That’s a nice story Mum,” saidKate.“Do you know what it means Kate?” said Mum.“The man who said thank you to Jesus did the right thing?” asked Kate.
“Well sweetie, yes he was a good man,” said Mum. “Jesus deserves to be thanked. When we are truly thankful and show our gratitude, He is faithful to provide our needs and gives extra blessings. Every day we need to think about all the things we are grateful for. ”
That night at dinner, it was Kate’s turn to say grace.“Dear Jesus, thank you for our dinner. Thank you also for mum and dad, mum making my toastie and for mum giving me a bubble bath. Thank you for my dolls. Amen”
“Wow Kate, you had a lot of things to be thankful for tonight,” saidMum.“Yes mum, I remembered to say thank you like in the story,” said Kate.“That’s wonderful Kate. Can you think of some other things we can thankJesus for?” asked Mum.
