Gospel Mt 18:12-14
Jesus always seems to step out to find the one who has gone astray. Lost their way. Perhaps it started as an adventure, but now they are separated from the flock. He deliberately leaves the rest who stay together waiting for Him and steps out to find the one missing.
Can we say the same ourselves? Do we react positively to the one who is obviously “outside the flock”? Unfortunately it’s not always the case.
Today I will renew my efforts to be attentive to those outside who need some gentleness and kindness shown to them.
