Tell God how thankful you are that he takes care of you like a shepherd cares and watches over his sheep.
Sheep are curious but dumb animals. Did you know that sheep are often unable to find their way home even if the sheepfold is within sight? Knowing this, the sheperd never takes his eyes off his wandering sheep. Read Psalm 32:8.
Set the table with one less plate than needed. Hide the plate, and then ask your family to look for it. Celebrate when you find it.
Read the story Jesus told about finding something that was lost in Luke 15:4-7. What does repent mean? Why should we celebrate when a person repents?
- Why does God look for lost people?
- Why was the plate important? why was the sheep important? Why is each person important?
- Why do you think Jesus used stories to tell us about His kingdom? How do these stories help us to understand?

We had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found (Luke 15:32).
