One lost sheep

An EasyEnglish Story Unit (AEE) from Matthew’s Good News

Joyce Ferrie



What will a man do who has 100 sheep and 1 gets lost?


He will leave the other 99 on the hillside.

He will go and look for the lost sheep.




When he finds it, he will be very happy.



He will be happier about this one sheep

than about the 99 that did not get lost.





God is like that.

He does not want any of his people to be lost.

God wants to take care of all of us.




Matthew 18:10-14.
