|| Luke 15:3-7
MT18:12 “How does it seem to you? If a shepherd had one hundred sheep and one strayed, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and seek out the straying sheep? MT18:13 I tell you this truth: When he finds it he is happier over the one sheep than the ninety-nine who had not strayed. MT18:14 And so, it is not my heavenly Father’s will that even one of these little ones perish.
 How does it seem to you: Or, KJV: how think ye; KNX: tell me this. The “you” is plural referring to all the disciples.
 Shepherd: Literally, “man.”
 Hills: Or, “mountains.”
 Happier: Or, MON: rejoices.
 It is not my heavenly Father’s will: Or, RHM: thus there is no desire in the presence of my Father; PME: you can understand then that it is never the will of your Father.
 Even one of these little ones perish: Or, RHM: should be lost. Note this is how the Father feels about the ‘little ones’. It is God’s will than none perish though the possibility of a little one being stumbled is there and thus the severity of the warning to those who would stumble others.
