THE LOST SILVER

Luke 15:8-10

I. THE SILVER WAS INVALUABLE

Luke 15:8

A. In that day, married women wore a headband that was made up of coins strung together

1. It declared her status as a married women

2. Those coins also declared her independence

3. It was used to identify sinful women

B. That coin was precious to this woman. 

C. Of course, the object of this parable is to teach the value of one sinner to the Lord. Isaiah 43:7  

D. For this woman, her life could not be complete until she had found the coin that she had lost. 

II. THE SEARCH WAS INTENSE

Luke 15:8 

A. When this woman realizes that a coin has been lost, she springs into action to see that it is restored. 

B. That coin was lost in the darkness (Houses in that day had no windows), it was lost in the dirt (Houses in that day had dirt floors), it was lost in disuse (A lost coin cannot be used), and it was lost in the dwelling (It was lost in the house).    

1. Lost men are in darkness II Corinthians  4:4, John 8:12, Ephesians 2:1, John 6:44                                               2. Lost men are in the dirt  Isaiah 64:6
