Bible: Luke 15:3-7

15:3 So 1  Jesus 2  told them 3  this parable: 4  15:4 Which one 5  of you, if he has a hundred 6  sheep and loses one of them, would not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture 7  and go look for 8  the one that is lost until he finds it? 9  15:5 Then 10  when he has found it, he places it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 15:6 Returning 11  home, he calls together 12  his 13  friends and neighbors, telling them, ‘Rejoice with me, because I have found my sheep that was lost.’ 15:7 I tell you, in the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner 14  who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people 15  who have no need to repent. 16
