Let My People Know

"I hid myself and no one looked for me"

“While playing hide-and-seek with the other children, the grandson of a famous rabbi hid himself.

The others forgot about him somehow, and after some time, the little boy ran weeping to the rabbi.

‘Grandfather,’ he cried, ‘I hid myself and no one looked for me!’

Whereupon the rabbi was deeply moved and answered, ‘Why, that is the very same thing that God is saying all the time.’”
