Sermon Title: "Think Small"
September 24, 2017  
Mark Schloneger
Scripture: Matthew 18:10-14

These verses include the parable of the lost sheep. Remember, these verses come in the context of the disciples’ question about the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. The temptation for disciples, for the church, is to look down on those we deem as “half-hearted” or nominal Christians – those “on the fence.” However, Jesus tells disciples to avoid taking that view because Jesus says, that is not God’s view of them.  With these words and in the parable that follows, Jesus encourages his disciples to “think small” – focus on the people that the world labels as insignificant. This mentality is found at the heart of Christian community. Jesus goes on to say that it is not God’s will that anyone perish.
