We tend to see people from the wrong perspective

Luke 15:1-2
Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him.  2  And the Pharisees and the
scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.”

We all pursue what we see as valuable

Luke 15:3-4 – 3
So he told them this parable:  4  “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not
leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?

The parable shows us what it is that God values

Luke 15:5-7 – 5
And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.  6  And when he comes home, he calls together his
friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’  7  Just so, I tell you, there will
be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
