Lost (2)

Jesus continued to tell another story about something that was lost. This time the story was about a woman who had ten silver coins, but she lost one. Probably these ten coins were very important to this woman. Maybe this was all the money she had. So when she lost one coin, she was very upset.
The woman cleaned her house and looked for the lost coin. She continued to search until she found it. Then she did what the shepherd did in our story yesterday — she told her friends and neighbors the good news. She said (verse 9), “Be happy with me because I have found the coin that I lost!”
Then Jesus talks again about a lost sinner. He said that when someone changes and turns to God, the angels in heaven are very happy.
Think about the time when you became a Christian. Did you know that the angels rejoiced with you? Thank God today for His wonderful gift of salvation through Jesus.
