When the Pharisees and scribes murmured against the Savior, saying he ate with sinners, the Savior gave the following parable;
"What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.
I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance." (Luke 15:4-7)
Sometimes each of us feels like the lost sheep. We feel like there is no way back. Yet the Savior loves us enough to comfort us, lift us, and lead us back to the safety of his love if we turn to him.
May we ever rely on the Savior to lead us back is my prayer.
