I’m great at losing things, but terrible at finding things. Half my life is spent asking my wife, “Shona, have you seen my wallet/phone/keys/belt/charger?” and so on. And she always finds what I’ve spent ages looking for. I still secretly think she hides my stuff so she can ‘miraculously’ find it. Anyway, in our house, I’m known as the loser and Shona is the finder.
In Luke 15, three parables answer a basic spiritual question: “Who are the lost and who is the finder?” Let’s focus on the parable of the lost son to get our answer.
