PART 5: Thankfulness
Scripture: Luke 17:12-19

This is week 5 in our Better Together Series.  God takes notice of our praise and thanks. When Jesus healed ten lepers, only one returned to thank Him. Although all lepers were physically healed, Jesus pronounced this leper further healed by his faith, suggesting that our gratitude impacts our soul-level healing and closeness to God (a notion supported by how many times we are commanded to give thanks or given examples of it in the Bible). This is a great story to teach your children the importance of expressing gratitude, not just feeling it.

-We are better together because we can foster thankfulness because of what Christ has done.
-Gratitude helps community and friendships grow
-Thankfulness changes our mindset.
