Bible: Luke 15:4-10

15:4 Which one 1  of you, if he has a hundred 2  sheep and loses one of them, would not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture 3  and go look for 4  the one that is lost until he finds it? 5  15:5 Then 6  when he has found it, he places it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 15:6 Returning 7  home, he calls together 8  his 9  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 10  who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people 11  who have no need to repent. 12 

15:8Or what woman, if she has ten silver coins 13  and loses 14  one of them, 15  does not light a lamp, sweep 16  the house, and search thoroughly until she finds it? 15:9 Then 17  when she has found it, she calls together her 18  friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice 19  with me, for I have found the coin 20  that I had lost.’ 15:10 In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels 21  over one sinner who repents.”
