Luke 17:18 - "Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?”
All ten lepers needed physical healing and Jesus was moved with compassion and met their needs. He also desired to meet their spiritual needs, but only one out of the ten came back to give thanks.
Being unthankful is always a sign that self is exalting itself above God. A selfless person can be content with very little. A self-centered person cannot be satisfied. Thankfulness is a sign of humility and cultivating a life of thankfulness will help keep "self" in its proper place. Thankfulness to the Lord for what He is and what He has done is a very important part of the Christian life.
Giving thanks is a totally unselfish action and is a key to relationship with the Father that makes us "whole" and not just "healed."
