Nemo disobeys his dad by swimming out to the boat. As a result of his defiance, he is taken away by a diver. Despite the fact that Nemo messed up, Marlin (his dad), continues to love him. In fact, he loves Nemo so deeply that he searches the entire ocean for him. In the same way, God loves us so much that he will ALWAYS seek us out, no matter how far away we have drifted.
3 Then Jesus told them this parable:
4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?
5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders
6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’
7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
