Little Bo Peep

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And doesn't know where to find them
Leave them alone and they will come home
Wagging their tails behind them

"What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders
away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one
that wandered off? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier
about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.
In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little
ones should be lost." (Matthew 18:12-14)

The Father is not like Little Bo Peep and we are not like her sheep. He does not leave us alone.

"... because God has said, 'Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.'" (Hebrews 13:5)
