The Lost Is Found January 5, 2016

Mildred Fello of Miami Beach Florida accidentally discarded her $4,000 diamond ring in a plastic laundry bag. She only realized what had happened minutes after the garbage men had picked it up. Miss Fello then chased the garbage truck for two blocks, but the men could not help her. The machinery had smashed everything together. So she went to the dumping centre and sorted through the refuse. Surprisingly, with the help of the garbage crew, she found her diamond intact. “Even in all that mess, the ring looked just beautiful,” she said. Her unusual story reminds one of a Bible verse in Luke’s Gospel that says, “…the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Just as that diamond ring was valued, and sought after by its owner, so our Heavenly Father valued us, when we were spiritually lost, and sent His Son, Jesus to save us. We are told, “When we were still without strength, in due time, Christ died for the ungodly.”
