Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Family Bible Study - 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Gospel Passage
Luke 17:11 On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Sama'ria
and Galilee. 12 And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who
stood at a distance 13 and lifted up their voices and said, "Jesus, Master,
have mercy on us." 14 When he saw them he said to them, "Go and show
yourselves to the priests." And as they went they were cleansed. 15 Then
one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God
with a loud voice; 16 and he fell on his face at Jesus' feet, giving him thanks.
Now he was a Samaritan. 17 Then said Jesus, "Were not ten cleansed?
Where are the nine? 18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God
except this foreigner?" 19 And he said to him, "Rise and go your way; your
faith has made you well."

Questions for discussion -

1. In this story, Jesus did a miracle! He made ugly terrible skin sores disappear
on ten sick people. Only one came back to say thank you. When God or anyone
does something for you, do you always return
to say thanks?

2. Jesus loved the sick people that other people were mean to. How do you act
toward people with problems that no one else seems to love and care for?

3. Why do you think the other nine sick people never returned to say thanks for
taking the sores away? Why do you think some people never say thank you and are ungrateful when others do good things for them?
