8 ‘Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Doesn’t she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? 9 And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbours together and says, “Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.” 10 In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.’
Our retelling of the Parable of the Lost Sheep turned the story into a warning. This parable, however, is about celebration, God’s celebration over each person that accepts his invitation into his family! It is also about the celebration of those who discover the joy of becoming God’s children and the excited telling others about this.
