“Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and seek diligently until she finds it? And when she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin that I had lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” ~ Luke 15:8-10 (ESV)
Lord, You love each of us as if we were Your only child, Your only coin. That love is beyond my understanding, but I am eternally grateful for it. In the name of Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
