“Now one of them, when he saw that he had been healed, turned back, glorifying God with a loud voice” (Luke 17:15).

This is about being the kind of person we want to be; that we are supposed to be. To give thanks like the Samaritan in this story, who turned back only for this reason, requires deliberate intentionality. Instead of the secular preoccupation of finding oneself, it is a mental focus determined to create oneself into the image of the very One who dwells within us; that his Spirit of thanksgiving might be the reality of our daily lives.
