When you’re in a group or a crowd and each have their own needs and requirements, it would seem strange if the leader then wandered off to find another person who had maybe become separated from the group wouldn’t it?
Well Jesus did that – Matthew 18:12-14
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, truly I tell you, 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 perish.
I’m sure if you were that person who has become detached from everyone else, you’ would be happy that someone had come to save you wouldn’t you – I certainly would!
