Matthew 18 - NIV

10 -11 “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.[a]

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?

13 And 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.

14 In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish.
