Luke 17:9 (New Living Translation)
9 And does the master thank the servant for doing what he was told to do? Of course not.
Jesus is saying that there is a condition for appreciation, gratitude. There is some criteria that must be met.
He says if you want to be appreciated, if you want gratitude, you need to do something that is thankable. Just doing what is required, what is expected, is not thankable behavior.
Today I want to talk about the unthankful.
