Hide and Seek

The Kotzker Rebbe once saw a child crying.  When the Rebbe questioned his tears, the child explained, “I was playing hide and seek with my friends and they haven’t found me.”

“But isn’t that the point of the game: to hide so well that they can’t find you?”

“Yes,” said the child. “I was pleased that they couldn’t find me.  But I’m crying because they stopped looking for me.”

At that point the Rebbe lamented, “Hashem has been hiding for so, so long, and sadly so many of His children have stopped looking for Him.” ~ R’ Shalom Brodt
