True Gratitude

In reading the story of the cleansing of the ten lepers, in the Gospel of Luke, it seemed to me that this miracle is pregnant with Truth for all Christian Scientists.

"And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off." Then Jesus instructed them "go shew yourselves unto the priests."

This command of our Lord distinctly shows that he read in their minds the wonderful faith they had in him, because with no signs of restoration as yet upon them, they were told to do that which implied they were restored, to undertake a journey which would have proved vain unless Jesus' word and promise proved true.
