The one lost sheep gives him more joy than the ninety-nine that did not stray
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘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? I tell you solemnly, if he finds it, it gives him more joy than do the ninety-nine that did not stray at all. Similarly, it is never the will of your Father in heaven that one of these little ones should be lost.’
– Matthew 18:12-14
Thought for the day
No matter how much I achieve or how much I fail, no matter my social standing or the successes others may measure, on my worst days and my best days, I am always precious to God.
