Two Parables: The Lost Sheep and The Lost Coin
OBJECTIVE: To discuss these two parables and their application to us
today – God wants all to come to Him.
Feasting on the Word:
Have you ever lost something of value? What was it? How did it make
In the parable of the lost sheep, how many sheep were lost?
Do you think the shepherd loved his sheep?
What did the shepherd do to show his love for his sheep?
In the parable of the lost coin, how many coins were lost?
Do you think that the owner of the coin valued that coin?
What did the owner of the coin do to show that she valued that coin?
Why did they have a celebration?
How do these parables relate to God and His love for us?
Whom did God send to find the lost? (Luke 19:10)
Do you realize how much God loves you?
Conclude your devotional by reading John 3:16. Allow each family
member to share some ways God has demonstrated His love for us.
(Sending Jesus, giving us the Bible, giving us a caring family, etc.) Use
this time as an encouraging time to share things about each family
member that you value! Close with a prayer of thanksgiving for the love
that God has for you!
