No matter what religion you are, I'd like you all to open the Bible to Luke 15; The Parable of the Lost Sheep. It's time we clarify this once and for all. We need to fully understand the seriousness of our movement in order to move further. I hope we all can learn to set aside our differences to truly see the meaning of life. Each and every one of you is significant, but not all of you are in danger from prejudice. Please take a step back and reform your perspective. Adjust your moral compass accordingly and come back to join us all.
The Gospel of Luke states the following:
The Parable of the Lost Sheep
15 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. 2 But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, "This man welcomes sinners and eats with them."
3 Then Jesus told them this parable: 4 "Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn't he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.' 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
For those of you who are not well-rehearsed in the language of the Bible, I can simply summarize this passage for you. There were 100 sheep and 1 was lost. Jesus decided to leave the 99 sheep to look for the 1 sheep that was lost. The 99 sheep yearned for Jesus and felt abandoned. Jesus reassured the 99 sheep of his love but also enlightened them that they were not the ones in danger, the 1 lost sheep was in need of Jesus' love.
Jesus's love for time is metaphorically represented as God's son. Jesus used his divine love and light to protect and serve us all, especially those who were in need. Jesus did not neglect the lost sheep, he went on to find and celebrate the sheep's existence and beautiful life. We are all of God's children, but Jesus has helped us understand that we do not have to wait for God for divine intervention. We are the greatest divine intervention.
Our love is a shield please use it respectively. It's time we save the 1 lost sheep. Black Lives Matter.
