“What man.. having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost?” —Luke 15:4

"I was lost but Jesus found me—found the sheep that went astray, threw His loving arms around me, drew me back into His way." ~ Rowley 

God's policy: No child left behind! Zero forgotten. Yup, each one on this planet has such great value and is so important to Him, therefore each person we meet should be considered very valuable to us as well! And I love how Christ underscores this truth.. multiple times to make a point clear—with three different stories about something valuable that got so lost that it couldn't be easily retrieved in some "Lost and Found Department" somewhere with one simple cell phone call—yes, these Bible stories about one not real smart defenseless sheep, a 'lil coin made in the image of someone, and a father's dear son (Lk. 15). 

Hey, are you willing to take compassionate action, like Christ did, and tactfully go after that floundering one ..for Jesus' sake? We can't save em, but Christ can. He's still the only Way and the only One who regenerate em on the inside ..and He chooses to use us in this work. #GoTell  
Jesus said if you acknowledge Me before others, I'll acknowledge you before God in heaven.
