I think there were ten of them, but only one came back to say "thank you" for the help they had received. Does anyone know the full story?

Luke 17:11-19 provides us with the parable of the ten lepers.

Luke 17:11-14 As the Savior went to Jerusalem, he healed ten lepers. Of those ten lepers, only one returned to express gratitude.

Some of us may be like the nine ungrateful lepers, not always expressing our gratitude for the blessings we receive. Yet the scriptures teach us that it important that we express gratitude to the Lord.

Luke 17:14, 19 Although all ten lepers were cleansed, only the man who returned was made whole. There is obviously a difference between being healed and being made whole. Bishop Merrill J. Bateman taught: �In becoming a whole person, the grateful leper was healed inside as well as on the outside. That day nine lepers were healed skin deep, but only one had the faith to be made whole� (Ensign, May 1995, 14).
