RESPONSE READINGLuke 17:11-19 (
The Message)
Teacher:
It happened that as he made his way toward Jerusalem, he crossed over the border between Samaria and Galilee.
Children
: As he entered a village, ten men, all lepers, met him.
Teacher:
They kept their distance but raised their voices, calling out,
Children:
 
“Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”
 Teacher
:
Taking a good look at them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.”
 
Children
: They went, and while still on their way, became clean.
Teacher
: One of them, when he realized that he was healed, turned around andcame back, shouting his gratitude, glorifying God.
Children
:
He kneeled at Jesus’ feet, so grateful. He couldn’t thank him enough— 
and he was a Samaritan.
Children
:
Jesus said, “Were not ten healed? Where are the nine?
Teacher
: Can none be found to come back and give glory to God except this
outsider?”
Children:
 
Then he said to him, “Get up. On your way.
All:
 
Your faith has healed and saved you.”

OPENING DISCUSSION:
What does it mean to be thankful? Give children anopportunity to respond. Some thoughts to present: To be grateful for what someonedoes for you; To show appreciation when someone gives you a gift even if you donot like it; To be content with what you have; To express gratitude for a lunch or meal that you did not enjoy.
BIBLE LESSON
Have you ever had a birthday party in which you received birthday presents? (Ask for a show of hands) Were there some presents that you liked better than others?(Ask for a show of hands) Did you thank your family or friends for the gifts thatyou liked, and ignore the people who gave you gifts that you did not like as well?How do you think this would make someone feel if you actually had done this?(Ask for a few responses)In our Scripture response reading, there were ten lepers who were very sick. Theyhad heard that Jesus had power to heal. Because they recognized His great andwonderful power, they made the decision to come to Jesus for healing.Some people want to be healed and made well, but they do not want to serve Jesusand let him come into their heart and change them.These lepers were outcast in society and nobody wanted to be close to them at all.They were contaminated like someone having a bad cold that you would not wantto catch.Even when people do not go to church or love Jesus does not give us any right totreat them with love and kindness. Some people go to church to see what they canget out of it. That is ok as long as they come to church. Anyone who comes tochurch will hear about the Gospel and how much that Jesus loves them. They needto hear this.These lepers needed Jesus
touch. When Jesus touches our lives, we are kind toothers. We are thankful and show gratitude toward others. We are polite and showappreciation to others when they do kind things for us even if we do not like it.If you have a friend who brings in cupcakes to school to celebrate their birthdayand they have two choices
 – 
chocolate or vanilla. Let
s say that by the time theycome to your desk the chocolate is all gone. Because you hate vanilla cupcakes
