Matt 18:12–14

18:12–14 The concern for the one is not at the expense of the ninety-nine, but indicates God’s commitment to each disciple, and His special concern for one straying or in danger. God elects, seeks out, and preserves not only His church as a whole, but each individual within the church. Ezek. 34:11–16 probably lies behind this parable.
