Luke 15:4-7

4 aWhat man of you, having a hundred sheep, bif he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine cin the open country, and dgo after the one that is lost, until he finds it? 5And when he has found it, ehe lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for fI have found my sheep that was lost.’ 7Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who grepents than over ninety-nine hrighteous persons who need no repentance.
