Gospel: Luke 15: 1- 10
" Rejoice with me! I have found you." Luke 15:6
We spend most of our lives in search for something. It might be something concrete as our cellphones, pens, eyeglasses or something intangible such us courage, peace, love or knowledge.
Being in search is a sign for our desire for the fullness of life. And it is a search for someone not for something. He is the One who alone can fullfil something that we humans can't fill. It is our search for God that begins from His search for us.
In today's Gospel, God reminds us how important we are for Him that He would leave His 99 sheep just to search for us and to make us feel loved. The society may treat us as a nobody but never for God for in His eyes we are special, precious and of supreme value.
Do you allow yourself to be found?
