“Take care that you do not despise one of these little ones; for, I tell you, in heaven their angels continually see the face of my Father in heaven. What do you think? If a shepherd has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray? And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray. So it is not the will of your Father in heaven that one of these little ones should be lost. (Matthew 18:10-14, NRSV)
Do not despise one of these little ones.
Who is a little one?
Wouldn’t we all be little ones? Not just little children, but all of us.
Jesus said else where that unless you enter the kingdom of God as a little child you will not enter.
So do not despise anyone, or be in the way of God coming to them.
Because God rejoiced when He found you, and He rejoices all the more when someone sees the life they can have in Him and they follow.
So do not get in God’s way, but let Him use you to find the lost sheep!
