An Exceptional Place to Flourish


Last week we were introduced to parables, and our first parable of the sower and the seeds. Today we are looking at another parable: the parable of the lost sheep.
Watch the video and listen closely to the story.

The Lost Sheep

This story is based on Luke 15:1-7 and Matthew 18:12-14.

Now watch the video again. This time remember that Jesus' parables were used to teach people about his messages of how people should live their lives according to what God wanted for us. What is Jesus trying to teach Remember, his parables are usually metaphors, so it isn't really about sheep!
Try and retell the parable in your own words, with your own pictures. Then try and write below it what you think Jesus is trying to tell us with this parable.
