The lost sheep

Imagine if you were lost and no one was looking for you. It would be a horrible feeling! It’s easy to imagine the worse and let fear overcome. Now stop and imagine the complete opposite! Someone, is passionately searching for you. Someone will never stop searching until you are found. Someone is never giving up until they find you. 

This is what the shepherd did for a sheep. And this is what God will do for us if we ever lose our way. 

Let’s teach our children that if we every lose sight of who God is, He is always there activity searching for them. Remember this sheep was once in the flock and got lost, maybe distracted by something – something that can so often happen to young people in the church. 

Use this story to reassure them that no matter what, and no matter when, the good shepherd Jesus, will always be searching and wanting them back.
