Introduction
Exposition One
Matthew 18:10 ESV
“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 18:12 ESV
What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray?
Matthew 18:13 ESV
And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray.
Matthew 18:14 ESV
So it is not the will of my Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.

I. God will not allow even one true believer to fall away (14)

II. God places a priority on those who wander away and so should you (12-13)

III. Be sure not to neglect (despise) an individual believer for the sake of the whole (10)
