Matthew 18:10-14 (NLT)
10 “See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. 
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, I tell you the truth, 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 be lost.”
Some manuscripts, heaven. 11 The Son of man came to save what was lost.
TIME OF DAY:
Light comes from the sun on the top left hand side of this picture.
Shepherd & lost lamb.
I used various photographs from the internet to help me compose this scene. It is an amalgamation of some pictures of acacia shrubs, hot Israeli desert, lambs & the skink, of course.
The tree is an Umbrella thorn acacia (Acacia tortilis), which is found in semi-steppe shrublands, shrub-steppes, deserts & extreme deserts. It has long, sharp thorns, as can be seen on my illustration.
The lizard on the rock in right foreground is a Southern Schneider’s Skink, or Berber skink (Eumeces schneideri schneideri) a small silvery grey lizard, with bright orange scales & lateral line. It is found principally in the southern desert regions of Israel & is found in other middle eastern countries.
