Luke 15:3-7
Then Jesus told them this parable: ‘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? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbours together and says, “Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.” 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 people who do not need to repent. (NIVUK)

Sheep are a good metaphor for people.  They like to be with others, willing to follow a dominant leader but also like to make sure they can get away on their own.  They are easily frightened and hate going through narrow gaps.  They like going up but are frightened to go down.  Therefore, when they are out on the hillside, they can easily wander off, clamber up a steep bank, and not be able to get down again.  At that point, they are lost; away from the safety of the shepherd they are vulnerable to predators, and unable to take any initiative to help themselves.
