Your Father in heaven does not want any of these little ones to be lost.

Matthew 18:14

Today’s scripture tells the parable of the lost sheep. The good shepherd cares for all of his sheep, so that if just one gets lost he goes to find it. Everyone of them is important, just as everyone in the world is important to God.

How can we show that everyone is special today?


You could design a crib scene, complete with sheep and/or goats to celebrate the coming of the birth of Jesus at Christmas. If you’re feeling ambitious you could cut out your animals, or even build them!
