Lent Bible Challenge | Day 33
April 2
Luke 15

What does it mean to be lost? In our context today I often hear of lost kids, lost items, the lost youth of our generation and lost people who don't know Jesus. Jesus talks about all being "lost" in 3 parables that Luke organizes into today's section of the gospel. It's in response to Chapter 14 and the dinner scene in which Jesus criticizes and challenges those that aren't lost to discover and recognize what it means to be "found".

I myself feel lost these days. For me, "being found" isn't primarily about belonging, but rather about hope for the future.
