Here is a fascinating little story that exemplifies one of the great parables of Jesus. This little sheep was stranded on a mountain ledge and climbers made their way down to rescue the little guy.

It’s a real life example of this story from the book of Luke:

3 Then Jesus told them this parable: 4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

What a great reminder of one of the tasks that we should have on our list every day as we interact with people – to always be looking for those that have lost their way and bring them back.
