The Lost Coin

*Luke 15:8-10

A woman finds a lost coin. She holds it up. She says, “look at this coin that I have found. It has the utmost value to me.”

What if we did the same to everyone that we met? What if, in our interactions, we held them up. We said, “look at this person I met today. They are of the utmost value to me.”

Don’t we long for that, to be treated in that way?

Sheep and Goats

Judas and Peter betrayed God,

yet Peter kept going.

Not only that, but he was given the keys to heaven.

See the measure of our faith is not

whether or not we fail.

I mean, we all fail

It’s whether or not we’re willing to get over ourselves

and look to God

in spite of it that separates the sheep from the goats.
