English Standard Version (ESV)
3So he told them this parable: 4 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? 5And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ 7Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
Today I am so very thankful that even though I am as dumb as a sheep, my Shepherd, the great God who created me and knows everything about me, including my sinfulness, loves me so much that He pursues me. He loves me today, He loves me tomorrow. He loves me as deep as the sea. He loves me in joy and He loves me in sorrow…
Thank You God. You are good. I am humbled.
