Lost Sheep


How can you teach your small children that Jesus came to seek and save the lost?

The prophet Micah used the image of a shepherd to describe the coming Messiah. Jesus used the same imagery to tell people about himself, saying that He came to seek and save the lost.

Choose a family member to become the "lost sheep." While all the other family members close their eyes and count to 30, the one "lost sheep" hides somewhere in the house (or outside, weather permitting). The family searches for the one who has gone astray, and when he is found, everyone celebrates. Together, thank Jesus for seeking and saving His lost lambs.
