Luke 17...Ingratitude

"Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?" Luke 17:18

“Were not ten cleansed?”  Ingrates!  I can’t believe these nine lepers would not have the gratitude to at least tell the Lord thank you for all that He had done for them.  How could they walk away from Him as they did and not return to offer praise to the living God?  Yet, how often does my judgment turn against me when I think of my own ingratitude and the many blessings I have expected as a right instead of the grace that has been bestowed upon me for which I should continually offer Him praise for even the very breath I take.  Maybe we should stop for a moment and ponder on the many blessings He has given in order to praise the One who has given us these gifts from above.
