PARENT CORNER : Thankful Family Devotion
THE TENTH LEPER          DOWNLOAD AS WORD DOC
READ:   Luke 17:11-18
REFLECT/DISCUSS:
Whom have you been more like in the past: the tenth leper (who showed his gratitude to Jesus)
or the other nine (who didn’t thank him at all)?
If you were to thank the Lord for all the good things he’s done for you,
what are 3 things you would include?
How can you be more like the tenth leper from now on?

ACT:
If you are doing the Thankful Pumpkin Devo, keep going! 
As a family, come up with 3 ways God has blessed your family.
 
If you’re not doing the Thankful Pumpkin,
Take a single sheet of notebook paper. List at least three or four things you thank God for today. Place the paper somewhere the whole family can add to it each day.  Add three or four things to your list every day, until every white space on the sheet is covered with thanks to God.

PRAY on your own or as a family:
“Lord, you have done so much for me and given so much to me. I especially thank you today for___________.”
