Many times, I took random photos for other people whom I don't even know and I made it a point to return the photos. However, hardly anyone has ever reply my e-mail with a word of thank or appreciation.
Where has mannerism and a heart of thankfulness gone to? I read Luke 17:12-16 and this reminded me that during Jesus's time, this problem was already there!
As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, "Jesus, Master, have pity on us!" When he saw them, he said, "Go, show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, they were cleansed. One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus' feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.
