Jesus healed 10 lepers but only one returned to give him thanks. Why? The reason has to do with the entitlement mentality of the other nine. When you don't think you are a wicked sinner who deserves hell, you are not grateful when God blesses you. You expect it and demand it. Conversely, when you are humble, you are profoundly grateful when God does wonderful things for you, because you don't think you deserve it.
