Finding What Is Lost

I guess you know I wasn’t around to do a Morning Thoughts most of last week. I was at church camp with my peeps.
There is only one spot on campus that you can do any internet from and that’s outside the main office with a laptop running on battery power, so I opted not to do it.
Needless to say, today’s Morning Thought something that is leftover from last week.
Last Monday as I was getting the vehicles ready for camp, I took my truck keys out of my pocket and put them somewhere.
I remember thinking, “that’s not where I normally put them but I’ll pick them right back up.”
I haven’t seen them since.
I’ve looked everywhere; well, maybe not everywhere since I haven’t found them.
I’ve racked my brain trying to think of where I was when I laid them down.
Thank goodness I had the spare set and was able to keep going.
BUT I NEED MY OTHER KEY!!!
This reminds me of a parable that Jesus told; “Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:8-10
What a convicting piece of scripture.
If I was as diligent looking for lost souls as I have been my lost keys, I would probably have been able to tell quite a few about Jesus plan of salvation.
Jesus also told 2 other parables, one about a lost sheep and the other about a lost son, the prodigal son.
If He took the time to give us 3 different stories about finding those that are lost, then it seems to me that we should actually be diligently searching for them.
I must admit, I don’t look for the lost all that hard.
Truthfully, you don’t need too; they are all around you and me.
Finding the lost is a lot easier than finding my keys.
And I should be more concerned about the lost than my keys.
I can have a new key made for the truck but once a lost soul slips into eternity in hell, there is no getting that person back.
I pray that God will light a fire in me to do more for His kingdom in the seek-and-find department.

One thought on “Finding What Is Lost

  1. A few years ago I learned to be so bold as to ask people if they has recieced Christ as their Saviour. There is less trouble speeking with them than speaking with those who already know Him and don’t want to go any deeper into Him. I have been so blessed to speek with people that are egar to know the smiplest of TRUTHS, like God is here with you right now, or God knows what concerns you. Truely God likes answering our questions. We just keed to be listening!
