“And He said to him, ‘Stand up and go; you faith has make you well’” (Luke 17:19).
Interesting isn’t it, how often the behavioral sciences eventually catch-up to what scripture has long stated? Research has revealed that being thankful contributes to overall wellness — strengthening physical health, social relationships, positive mental states, and seeing value in others. What began as an expression of worshipful thanks by the Samaritan concluded with an affirmation of his faith. Might our faith be as virtuous. It’s a reminder that true thanksgiving is never a matter of what goes on the table, but rather, what dwells in the heart.
