“Jesus Taught about Heavenly Father’s Love,” Friend, May 2017
One day, people gathered to hear Jesus teach. He told three stories.
In the first story, a shepherd left his flock to look for one sheep that was lost. When he found it, he carried it home on his shoulders. He was so happy.
In the next story, a woman lost one of her silver coins. She lit a candle, swept the floor, and looked for her coin. When she found it, she celebrated with her friends.
In the last story, a son left home. He made bad choices and wasted all his money. He decided to go home and tell his father he was sorry. When the father saw his son coming, he ran to hug him.
Jesus told these stories to show how much Heavenly Father loves each person. He is so happy when we repent.
When I do something wrong, I can say I’m sorry and pray to Heavenly Father. Heavenly Father is happy when I repent, and so am I!
