When Moses had finished speaking to all Israel, he said to them, "I am
now one hundred and twenty years old and am no longer able to move
about freely; besides, the Lord has told me that I shall not cross
this Jordan. It is the Lord, your God, who will cross before you; he
will destroy these nations before you, that you may supplant them. It
is Joshua who will cross before you, as the Lord promised. The Lord
will deal with them just as he dealt with Sihon and Og, the kings of
the Amorites whom he destroyed, and with their country. When,
therefore, the Lord delivers them up to you, you must deal with them
exactly as I have ordered you. Be brave and steadfast; have no fear or
dread of them, for it is the Lord, your God, who marches with you; he
will never fail you or forsake you." Then Moses summoned Joshua and in
the presence of all Israel said to him, "Be brave and steadfast, for
you must bring this people into the land which the Lord swore to their
fathers he would give them; you must put them in possession of their
heritage. It is the Lord who marches before you; he will be with you
and will never fail you or forsake you. So do not fear or be

MATTHEW 18:1-5, 10, 12-14
The disciples approached Jesus and said, "Who is the greatest in the
Kingdom of heaven?" He called a child over, placed it in their midst,
and said, "Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like
children, you will not enter the Kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes
humble like this child is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven. And
whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me. "See
that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you
that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly
Father. What is your opinion? If a man has a hundred sheep and one of
them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and
go in search of the stray? And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he
rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not stray. In
just the same way, it is not the will of your heavenly Father that one
of these little ones be lost."

The love of God is quite personal, to the point that God will leave
ninety-nine others just to search for the missing one. Being human,
our logic sometimes dictate us to ignore that one single sheep, which
we view as expendable, sacrificing it for the greater majority. But
God's plan is different. God wants to save us all. He was willing to
allow His Son Jesus to die for every single one of us.

It was a personal kind of love that Jesus Christ wanted to reach out
to us. Just think … if we are that sheep that was lost, what a great
joy we would feel, what a special feeling we would have and cherish to
realize that the Lord goes through great lengths, great inconveniences
just for us – a single individual, but loved by God nevertheless with
the same great intensity as with the multitude. We are lucky that our
God is a personal God, a personal Father, a Father who does not regard
His children by preferences and importance. He regards each of us as
important and equally deserving of His love.
