GIVE THANKS TO GOD

As we know and realize , we live and exist today. This is the ordinary thing tha we
experience every day. Sometimes we consider tha it must be happen in our lives.
Sometimes we feel our existence is from our efforts. So we dont need to give
thank to God. I have a story that taken from the Gospel according to Luke.
Luke 17 : 11 19
Now it happened as He went to Yerusalem that He passed through the midst of
Samaria and Galilea.Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten
who stood far off.
And they lifted up their voices and said, Yesus, Master, have mercy on us! So
when He saw them, He said to them, Go. Show yourselves to the priest.
And so it was that as they went, thwy were cleansed. And one of them, when He
saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God. And
felldown on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was samarian. So
Yesus answered and said, Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the
nine?
Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this
foreigner? And He said to him, Arise, go your way.Your faith has made you
well.
REFLECTION:
1.There are 10 people who lepers who were healed by Yesus. Nine people are
Jews. And 1 people was samarian. Jews people show us the group of people who
believe in God and even they claim as the people of God. And the rest of
samarian people who was uderestimated by jews as pangan people. People who
dont believe in God.
2.When they were healed, the nine jews people forgot to give thank to Yesus.
They consider that God must heal them because they have faith. But in the
contrary the samarian people who dont believe in God, came back to Yesus,
praised Him and gave Him thank.
3.Do we always become the 9 jews people or 1 samarian peolpe?
4.We always forget to give thank to God for everything we got, such as life, air,
weather, job ,friends, daily experience, etc. Because we consider that God must
do the good thing for us. We forget that we dont haaaaaave a right for our lives.
Only God have right for our lives. Without Gods mercy we can not exist today.
So let us give thank to God every times for everything we god.
