Was there no one found to return and to give thanks and praise to God, except this foreigner?

-Luke 17:18

Outsiders gain great appreciation when they are accepted to become insiders. In reality, we are all outsiders until God shows grace and we gratefully receive it. Therefore, we have much to be thankful for as God has shown us much grace. Welcome children and other outsiders in as a symbolic gesture of God’s open arms. Model gratefulness by giving God credit and confessing your need.

Lord, remind me that apart from you, I am a far-off outsider. Thank you for welcoming me.
