  1. How often we see others as lost sheep and berate them rather than helping them into, or back to, the Shephard’s flock! (Or, help them into the treasury — in keeping more with this parable’s theme)

  2. The oddest thing happened as I was reading your post , Don (with a not very focused mind to be honest). He popped “10%” and the word “whole” around my thoughts. And almost without any thought at all this followed –

    “It is not 10% of my worth, it 10% of my wholeness. Those 10% you deem too sinful to welcome, too “not what the bible says” I like around me, too unclean to be seen (with you) … They are my whole – they are my 10%. They are not a missing coin or a number of worth simply to be found and counted. They are me and you. Without my “10%” I am not whole. And without my 10% … are you whole?”

    No more words from me except Thank You.
