The Parable of the Lost Sheep

Luke 15:1-10

Through these two parables Jesus is telling the disgruntled Pharisees and scribes that his interest lies in those who are lost. Like the sinners and tax collectors, they are separated from God and alienated from society because of sin and/or circumstance. And yet they, not the righteous ones, seek him out.

Prayer: When I find myself judging others because of their words or actions, remind me that they are your little ones.
