Bible: Luke 15:7-10

15:7 I tell you, in the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner 1  who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people 2  who have no need to repent. 3 

15:8Or what woman, if she has ten silver coins 4  and loses 5  one of them, 6  does not light a lamp, sweep 7  the house, and search thoroughly until she finds it? 15:9 Then 8  when she has found it, she calls together her 9  friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice 10  with me, for I have found the coin 11  that I had lost.’ 15:10 In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels 12  over one sinner who repents.”
