Do you value your siblings? If not, ask me what they are worth. I’ve lost one.
Do you love for your spouse? If not, ask me what they are worth. I’ve lost one.
Do you treasure children? If not, ask me what they are worth. I’ve lost one.
Do you appreciate your job? If not, ask me what it is worth. I’ve lost one.
Do you care for yourself? If not, ask me what you are worth. I was once a lost one.
Matthew 18:11-For the Son of man came to save [from the penalty of eternal death] that which was lost. What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray and gets lost, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountain and go in search of the one that is lost (AMP)?
Time waits for no one. Treasure every moment you have and make it more special by connecting with the One who finds us when we are lost.
John 3:16-For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.
Matthew 18:13-And if it should be that he finds it, truly I say to you, he rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not get lost (AMP).
Lord, we treasure your treasure hunting on our behalf….Let us save you some time. Here we are, Lord. Here we are! Amen.
