When your donkeys go missing, you should go look for them, right? That's what Saul was instructed to do in 1 Samuel 9:1-3 by his father. As it turns out, Saul found more than a few lost donkeys on his trip. In fact, he surprisingly found himself anointed as the King of Israel.
We all lose things from time to time, but often we give up on our search not realizing that we may find other treasures far greater than what was lost.
Don't mourn what is lost. Celebrate the search.
Keep looking for donkeys.
