bible 5 edited

Among the most famous of Jesus’ stories are the ones found in Luke 15; the stories of the lost coin, lost sheep and the lost boy. There are some things that each of these stories have in common. Obviously, all three of them in-volve something lost. Each story pictures someone rejoicing.

Have you ever made a really dumb decision? Yeah, I know its not a pleasant topic; we don’t like to dwell on our mistakes. Mistakes come in all shapes and sizes and their consequences do as well.

Because it was such a dirty job they offered even more pay to get it done. I was young, agile, broke and willing so I got the job.
