today's reading.
Luke 15:1-7

the blog.
Before we get into the parable of the lost sheep, there are two introductory verses. I'm not sure I've ever paid much attention to them, but today, they seemed to jump off the page at me, especially verse 1 where we're told how the sinners were drawing near to Jesus. What a beautiful picture of exactly why Jesus came to earth, to seek and save the lost. And, it prompted me to think about my actions and what I'm conveying to those around me. Am I demonstrating God's love to others and in so doing making having a relationship with Christ attractive to them? 

So what about you? How did these two verses impact you today? Tami
