**I have no idea how this happened, but this poem reverted back to a draft instead of published. Sorry for the re-post! But maybe there was someone else who needed it, right?
When No One Else Will
Love the prodigals
Out seeking life’s thrills;
Love the lost cases
When no one else will.
Love the undeserving
Whose lives are dark-filled;
Love the wanderers
Where no one else will.
Love the unworthy,
Those trapped in sin still;
Love the unlovely
How no one else will.
Who among us was not a prodigal, at some point? God desires for His lost sheep to come back into the fold. What part in that process is He calling you to today?
None are deserving, but all are still loved by the Shepherd of our souls.
“What do you think? If any man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go and search for the one that is straying? “If it turns out that he finds it, truly I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine which have not gone astray.”
Matthew 18:12, 13
