The story of Jesus healing the ten lepers contains several important insights. For kids, one obvious take-away is the value of gratitude and saying thank you—both to people and especially to God. This story also includes a message of the mercy of Christ. He healed the stricken men, and even though only one returned to say thank you, He did not punish those who neglected to do so. Another interesting note is that the man who did come back was a Samaritan, typically looked down on in Jewish culture. This lesson focuses largely on the element of thanksgiving, but feel free to use whatever methods and emphasis you prefer to communicate the Scripture.

Perhaps this story would better be called the one leper, as our focus is really on the single Samaritan who returned to Jesus in grateful appreciation for healing.  God has given us so much in life, and the natural expression of appreciation for His care should be genuine thanks. Being thankful for God’s blessings is not by any means a requirement for salvation, but the Lord loves it when we show gratitude for His work in our lives. Recognizing all that He has done and given, how and why would we not give thanks?

Great for teaching thanks to the Lord.

I only have 5 students & used the Thanksgiving month to stress being thankful to God for all He has done for us. I know that the kids were blessed by this teaching & it will spread to their parents too. Thank you so much for sharing this lesson. Tammy

Great lesson!

I used the Ten Lepers story for the children’s sermon. It was a well written lesson and after I added a little drama, the kids were enthralled by the message and lesson Jesus wanted taught. I love your lessons because they are so flexible!
