Misplaced or Lost?



When we misplace something, it’s because it is not valuable to us. When we lose something, we will search until we find it, because it is so valuable to us. God loves and values each of us so much that he will seek and find us. All we must do is accept his love.

Like losing your right hand!

Have you ever lost your phone? If you’ve come to rely on it as much as I have, you will know the sick feeling in your stomach when you realise it’s missing. You will search high and low for it – even in the most inexplicable and highly improbable places – to try and find it. Others will help you by asking perceptive questions like, “Where did you have it last”?

Misplaced or lost?

The difference between misplacing something and losing something is its value. If you misplace something, often you don’t bother looking for it, because it was not really valuable to you. But if you lose something, you will search and search until you find it, because it’s valuable to you.

God is willing to seek and find us

Through the parables of the Lost Sheep and the Lost Coin, we are reminded that God loves and values us so much that he sent his one and only Son, Jesus Christ, to find us and to save us. That’s Good News!

All we have to do is accept his love and be ready to return to him. Our membership of the church is a sign of our willingness to be found and of our return to God. Have you responded to the Good News?

In our Battle Drill devotionals this week, we continue to learn that our God is one who seeks the lost and returns them to his fold. There’s a new episode of Battle Drill Devotional every Monday through Friday.
