Joy

Our Bible Reading today tells us about a shepherd who lost one sheep. The shepherd searched for the sheep. When the shepherd found the sheep, he brought it home. Everyone was happy because the sheep was found.
In this story, the sheep represents a person who does not know Jesus. The shepherd is a Christian who shares the Good News about Jesus. The friends who celebrate with the shepherd are other Christians.
The shepherd and his friends were joyful when the lost sheep was found. In the same way, “heaven is a happy place when one sinner decides to change. There is more joy for that one sinner than for 99 good people who don’t need to change” (verse 7b).
