Sometimes when people have a pet that gets lost, they put up posters in the neighborhood. These posters contain a picture of the pet and other relevant information, including a number to call in case you find the missing kitty or doggie.
Parents will do the same thing when a child goes missing. Desperate to be reunited with their loved one, they will go to great lengths to see that their son or daughter makes it home safely.
If only we were that diligent with people who are lost spiritually.
“Be merciful to those who doubt; save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.”—Jude 22-23.
