The Shepherd Finds the Sheep

But the sheep is tired. It has come through woods and fields, and over stony
 paths. Its feet are sore and it cannot walk all the way back to its home. Will
 the shepherd leave it here alone to die ? No, he does not even speak an
unkind word to it, but he lifts it up on his shoulder and carries it. He has far
to go and the load is heavy, but he carries it gladly until he reaches his home.
 And when he gets there he calls his friends and says to them, Come, and
rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost!

Luke 15:1-7
