No City Is Too Small for God: Reaching the Crevices of the World If God calls you to live for him in a small or obscure city, do not mistake your ministry as trivial. Heaven will one day reveal all the wonders of God in overlooked places. When Jesus wanted to make a point to the religious leaders of his day about the significance of every life and the eternal soul, he told them two surprising stories. He told them about a shepherd who was not content simply to enjoy the ninety-nine sheep, forgetting about the precious wayward one. In the same way, neither were nine coins to be satisfactory, as long as one was missing. Just as there was rejoicing when the one lost sheep and the one lost coin were found, Jesus said there will be joy in heaven over even one sinner who repents (Luke 15:1–10).
