Where Are The Other Nine?

Throughout the scriptures, it’s difficult to find many of those who follow and love God also being the same people who also thank Him.  Whining and complaining have been unholy staples in the lives of far too many of us.  Where thanksgiving is absent, complaints will abound, and so too in our time.  When Jesus healed ten lepers, only a tithe of them returned to say “thanks.”  The happiest, most joyful and clear thinking people on the planet are those who return to God often to thank Him for everything.  “In everything give thanks” the scripture says and if we make thanksgiving our lifestyle, we will also find more joy in all we do and purpose in our difficulties.
