Lost Coin

If there was joy over 1 lost sheep returned to the fold of 100, imagine the joy of regaining 10% of your money!

Luke 15:8-10

  • “What woman…” Men and women are alike in their desire to find lost possessions.
  • Light…sweep…seek. No darkness or dust was going to prevent her finding the lost silver.
  • She celebrates by calling her friends and neighbors. What did such celebration cost? Wouldn’t she have been further ahead if she had just phoned them all to tell the good news? Do you think they would have been genuinely interested in her recovery? Does this say anything about changing societies?
  • So also there is great joy among the angels when a sinner repents. Why do they care? What interest have they in the salvation of men?
