  1. It’s easy to talk about the fact that shepherds usually worked in groups in New Testament times, so that the 99 sheep had other shepherds looking after them. But I don’t think that’s what Jesus had in mind. I think the traditional application of taking a risk in some areas to focus on one person, is probably the best one.
    So… Can I think of I time I did that? Nothing as dramatic as leaving 99 sheep vulnerable to wolves. But each time I make a choice to be patient with someone or to forgive someone leaves a better impression of Christians than when I’m more concerned with my schedule, my pride, my 99 other priorities. I hope some of you have better stories to tell. I’d love to hear them! Sue
