losing something we love

“Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Does she not light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” ~ Luke 15:8-10
I know this is about saving lost sinners, but this story also reminds me of searching for things we lose in our lives. Sometimes it is a set of keys. Sometimes it is a marriage. Sometimes it is a friendship. Sometimes it is our first love…our close relationship with God.
I can just see the woman tearing her house apart, looking high and low for her lost coin. Is it under the teapot? The couch cushions? Okay, maybe they didn’t have those things in Bible times, but you get the picture.
And you have to wonder if there is a purpose to the losing. Is it to teach us not to be careless? To be more faithful? To pay attention to where you are going instead of what is behind you?
Whatever it is remember that there are things worth looking for and fighting for when lost because they are irreplaceable. And there are other things, like keys that you can just get duplicates for.
