The first part of the parable is most people’s favorite.

Many people don’t bother thinking about Jesus’ story much beyond this section.

Who can blame them?  This is a touching story of forgiveness and redemption.

Have you ever reached into your pocket and found cash you weren’t expecting?

The most I ever found was a $20 bill in a winter coat. It had been in there since the previous winter. I was so excited!

Jesus teaches, “In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents” (v. 10).
