Luke Chapter 15 – Again, the Pharisees are upset with who Christ is hanging around with rather than rejoicing with those who are being healed and saved.
Jesus of course knowing what they are saying tells the story of the lost sheep (there’s more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner’s rescued life than 99 ‘good’ people in no need of rescue 7),
the lost coin (God’s angels throw a party every time one lost soul turns to God 10),
and the lost son (a huge feast given in his honor as he was thought to be dead but found alive 24).
Bam! Come on Pharisees and Sadducee. Trust God. Adhere to His commands. Learn from each story above and if ever the case may be, remind yourself how you are so much more valuable to our Heavenly Father then a lost sheep or lost coin. And if you ever become prodigal, humbly return.
