Jesus’ Stories – The Lost Sheep
Most parents have had the experience of losing sight of one of their children while out shopping, even for a brief moment. The joy of finding them, even if they were only a few steps away, was immeasurable.
In Luke 15, Jesus uses the Parable of the Lost Sheep to show a crowd of tax collectors, sinners, and Pharisees just who matters to God, and the lengths he will go to to love us. The Good Shepherd knows each sheep by heart, and will go to great lengths to find them. Each one is highly valuable to him, worthy of the search, and the joy of finding the one that is lost is tremendous.
What does this parable reveal to us about God’s Kingdom? What does it reveal about us?
