Finding the Little Ones- Good News for December 9

9 12 2008

Matthew 18: 12-24

Jesus said to his disciples, “What is your opinion? If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go in search of the stray? And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not stray. 

In just the same way, it is not the will of your heavenly Father that one of these little ones be lost.” 

The Daily Path: One of my Advent prayers is that during this Christmas season some of the stray “little ones” will be inspired to look up and see their shepherd. He found this stray.
