Elul 5

Why do we hide? To be found, perhaps. There is a Hasidic tale of a Rabbi who found his child crying. When he asked what was wrong the boy said, "I was hiding and no one came to look for me." The Rabbi comforted him and mused, "You know, God makes the same complaint." Don't only hide. Seek.

Devote one hour of sacred living today to the pursuit of God, even if it means pausing from other pursuits.
