Of the ten leprous men that Jesus healed, only one came back to give him thanks. The Bible says, “He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him…” (Luke 17:16).
This is an extremely expressive way to express thanks. I grew up in a church where people usually worshipped in more quiet, dignified ways.
I heard of a man who once encountered a mugger. After a brief discussion, the robber said, “I don’t care what kind of church you attend, I said to put your hands up in the air!”
Jesus didn’t reprimand the healed man for his style of worship. Rather, he commended him for his thankful response.
Let us be uninhibited in our thanksgiving. Express your joyful thanksgiving with all of your heart, soul, body and mind!
