The Story of the Ten Lepers

Luke 17:11-19 was a story of the ten lepers that was asking healing from Jesus. During their time, lepers were outcast that they have to hold their certain measure of distance from the society. On one of Jesus' healing mission trip, he happened to met these ten lepers. They were shouting from a distance, "Jesus, Master, have pity on us."
When Jesus saw them, he said, "Go, have yourselves checked by the priest." And as they went, they were healed. One of them, a Samaritan, when he realized that he was healed, came back to Jesus and thanked him with a shout. Jesus asked, "Were not all ten healed? Where are the other nine?"
This story shows how man can sometimes be bold to God when they are in need. They are as eager to show their faith to God whom they think is the only answer to their problem. But sad to say, once their request being granted, they were not anymore as bold as they were. They even forgot to thank God for the mercies that was bestowed upon them.
