Matthew 18:11-13. On Finding the Lost 15 Jul 2023

Mat 18:11,12 'Tell me.
Suppose a man has a hundred sheep and one of them strays;
will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hillside
and go in search of the stray?
13 In truth I tell you, if he finds it,
it gives him more joy
than do the ninety-nine that did not stray at all.

Typically most of us do not own sheep. I am not a parent myself, but which parent missing one child, will not seek till the child has been found. It is clear enough.

Church and Community

I am just wondering. Does my church have a similar attitude? Do I have such an attitude towards my family and friends?

Prayer

Jesus, teach me on bringing back the lost sheep(s).

Ninety-nine
