The Parable of the Wandering Sheep10“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.
11Some manuscripts include here the words of Luke 19:10.12“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?13And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.
14In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish.
