Some people feel lost. They don’t think they deserve love or respect or any consideration from God. They know sin has taken over their lives, but they don’t know what to do.
Jesus tells us through the parables of the lost sheep and the lost coin that while we may be lost, He never stops searching for us. To Jesus, we are the valuable sheep that has wandered off. We are the highly valued coin that has been misplaced.
Through these parables, Jesus teaches that we are loved, we are highly desired, and we are of great value to God.
