Luke 15:4-7

   Suppose one of you has 100 sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the 99 in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?

5   And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulder and goes home.

6   Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says rejoice with me. I have found my lost sheep.

7   I tell you the truth there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine who do not need to repent.
