UNDAILY Episode 75

Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent. “Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Doesn’t she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."

LUKE 15, 1-10 (NIV)

In today's world, it's very easy to get lost. We're not talking about wandering through the forest or highway because we lost GPS signal. I mean spiritual and emotional disorientation, which can strike us at different stages of life. Losing a job and income, the breakdown of a relationship followed by divorce and the loss of family and friends. All too often, we serve ourselves a "rollercoaster ride." We find ourselves in the galaxy of 'loneliness,' where everyone is busy with their affairs. We feel battered and unnoticed, insignificant... just like the sheep that strayed from the flock, or the coin that rolled under the furniture.

The story of the lost sheep and the lost coin from the Gospel according to Saint Luke sheds light on one of the most fundamental truths about God's nature. It's about His infinite love for the lost.
