Devotion on Relationship with God, Matthew 18:12-14. 1 page.

"What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost" (Matthew 18:12-14).

Have you ever asked yourself the question, "How far off of the green hill and out of His safe pasture has the Lord looked for me?" Honestly, my answer makes me squirm a bit — there have been times when I know He's had to leave the "ninety-nine" to go looking yet again!
