Finding something you thought you’d lost feels like a second chance, a new beginning. From keepers of sheep and seekers of coins to fathers of wayward children, Jesus brings home the unfettered joy of a creator reunited with those who are most beloved.
God welcomes every single one of God’s children into God’s kingdom; none is more valuable than another.
