That does not mean we can be ungrateful with what is given or done for us. Not at all. The scripture admonishes us to always give thanks in all things.
The lesson of the nine ungrateful leapers continuing on with their blessings from God, should teach us to be cautious about our own motivation. When we begin to withhold our acts of kindness and helpfulness because we think those who receive do not properly appreciate what is done for them, it’s time to question our own motives. We don’t give to be thanked. We give because we are thankful.
Take Away: We don’t give to be thanked. We give because we are thankful.
