24th Sunday - C
Luke 15: 1- 32
The Lost and The Seeker
In all three parables of this Gospel passage, those who are lost either do not seek their way back themselves (the sheep, the coin, and the older son) or go back for the wrong reason (the younger son).
It is the seeker who makes the efforts and takes the initiative to search for and find the lost.
Isn't that the way God deals with us?
It is not because we search for God knowing that we are lost. And even when we might reach out for God, it can be for the wrong and selfish reasons,
But it is God who seeks out the lost because God is full of love and mercy.
