Gospel: Luke 17:11-19
The attitude of gratitude
When was the last time you stopped to give thanks to God? Life offers a lot that we are to be grateful for.
Sometimes, instead of thanking God for what He has given us, we end up complaining of the little we receive or what we do not have yet. Worse is even when we get what we prayed for, we become the nine lepers, who forget to acknowledge God’s blessings in our lives.
We are invited to cultivate in us the attitude of gratitude and experience the grace that comes from it. Lord, all that we have come from you. Help us to grow in gratitude each day.
