Of course not! Instead, you say to him, "Get my supper ready, then put on your apron and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may have your meal.'
The servant does not deserve thanks for obeying orders, does he?
It is the same with you; when you have done all you have been told to do, say, "We are ordinary servants; we have only done our duty.' "
As Jesus made his way to Jerusalem, he went along the border between Samaria and Galilee.
He was going into a village when he was met by ten men suffering from a dreaded skin disease. They stood at a distance
and shouted, "Jesus! Master! Have pity on us!"
Jesus saw them and said to them, "Go and let the priests examine you." 1 On the way they were made clean.
When one of them saw that he was healed, he came back, praising God in a loud voice.
He threw himself to the ground at Jesus' feet and thanked him. The man was a Samaritan.
Jesus spoke up, "There were ten who were healed; where are the other nine?
Why is this foreigner the only one who came back to give thanks to God?"
