Daily Word Of God

Matthew 18:12-14

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Tell me. Suppose a man has a hundred sheep and one of them strays; will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hillside and go in search of the stray? In truth I tell you, if he finds it, it gives him more joy than do the ninety-nine that did not stray at all.

          ‘Similarly, it is never the will of your Father in heaven that one of these little ones should be lost.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • This Gospel clearly shows our Lord’s loving concern for every single sinner. His Patience is infinite as His Compassion has no bounds insofar as we are willing to repent.


  • God can make saints out of sinners for He does not give-up on us. No matter how sinful we may be He will continue to wait in hope for the day when we will return to His Compassionate embrace.


  • Do you listen to his voice and heed his wise counsel? Do you follow the path He has set for you – a path that is life-giving and ultimately leads to eternal life?
