Spotted Sheep

Matt 18:12 “What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? 13 And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. 14 In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish."

1 Peter 2:25 "For you were like sheep going astray, 
but now you have returned to the Shepherd 
and Overseer of your souls."

Mark 6:34 Jesus came out, saw a great multitude, and he had compassion on them, 
because they were like sheep without a shepherd, 
and he began to teach them many things.

John 10:11“I am the good shepherd. 
The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
  12The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep.
 So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. 
Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. 
 13The man runs away because he is a hired hand
 and cares nothing for the sheep.

14“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep16I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. 18No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”

If I'm going to get lost, I want to get lost like a sheep
