Thoughts from Luke 17 (Don’t be motivated by appreciation)

Jesus healed ten lepers but only one returned to say thank you. Life can be like that sometimes, you can do things for people and they never respond with a word of appreciation.
That’s why we have to focus on the one that does, not the nine that don’t, otherwise we may give up on doing good. And withdrawing from positive connection with others isn’t the answer. It’s nice to be appreciated but we can’t let that become our motivation for good deeds.
