leaving 99


See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.

What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.

-Matthew 18:10-14


What a great promise. One of my favorite bands, Audio Adrenaline, has a song about this exact verse called, "Leaving 99." It's a great song, and they're a great band:
