How God Values You
God wants us to be fulfilled in His purpose and good intent for our lives. For that reason, Jesus confronts the culture of His time that was becoming increasingly depersonalized and loveless with three parables: a shepherd who lost one of a hundred sheep, a woman who lost one of ten coins, and a father of two sons, one of whom has gone off and squandered his inheritance. Whether one of two, one of ten, or one of a hundred, the Lord wants us to know how much He values each person. If a creature as insignificant as a sparrow isn’t overlooked by Father God, how much more does He care for us?
