He will bless who He wants to bless when He wants to bless them. Especially those who give Him honor and praise. Especially those who thank Him for all He has done. Such was the case with the leper, the outcast, the one who was overlooked, because he held no significance with the people he encountered or who unwillingly encountered him. Yet, Jesus didn't overlook him.
What do you think this meant? I believe it meant the leper was going to do big things, because he knew who his father was. His place with Jesus was now secure because he now lived in the kingdom of God. And you know what I also believe? I believe no one else would ever overlook him again.
