Then Jesus told them this parable:
Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and
loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country
and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?
And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders
and goes home. Then he calls his friends
and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my
I tell you that in the same way there
will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than
over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
Luke 15, 3 - 7
The Parable of the Lost Sheep.
1. What had to do the sheep special, so that it was found?
Well, again and again call, so that it heard the shepherd.
Say "Maeaeh" simply again and again.
Humans say to it "prayer".
Perhaps our prayer is then sometimes also such crying and calling:
"Jesus, please finds me!"
2. What did the shepherd, when he found the sheep?
strokes, punishment, berate, reproaches?
... he joyfully puts it on his shoulders. it
... he joyfully puts it on his shoulders!!!
For the lamp that was safe like "Christmas"!
For you also? ... Christmas - the MESSAGE OF THE CHILD - the word
How sweet the sound.
That saved an wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now I'am found;
I was blind, but now I see.
