The Parable of the Lost Coin
8"Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Does she not light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it?
9And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.'
10In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."Luke 15; 8-10
I have been on a mission. I lost a CD. A library CD. A $40 (that I don't have) library CD. And I have been looking and stressing. After upending many piles and stacks and cleaning behind oft forgotten areas...I found it.
And my immediate thought was of this passage, the first two verses. But when I went to look it up I, of course saw verse 10, "In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."
Many lessons to learn. Praying we all contribute somehow to the joyful noise before the throne. If I am so excited over a CD, how much more my fellow man. He does work in all things.
