Matthew 18:12-14

12 "If a man has a hundred sheep but one of the sheep gets lost, he will leave the other ninety-nine on the hill and go to look for the lost sheep.
13 I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that were never lost.
14 In the same way, your Father in heaven does not want any of these little children to be lost.
