In reflecting on this miracle moment, I see a linkage I’ve never seen before. Jesus makes a strong link between faith and thankfulness. Lack of thankfulness could well indicate a lack of faith. A strong and consistent sense of thankfulness indicates a strong and robust faith in God.
It is quite an empowering linkage really – I can always cultivate more thankfulness to Jesus for who He is and what He’s done. And that is more than simply good for my mental health – it builds a robust faith in God!
