When Sa-chi Gabriel’s little brother was born, she begged her parents to leave her alone with the baby. They refused, fearing that, as with many four-year-olds, she was jealous and wanted to mistreat him. But Sa-chi showed no signs of jealousy. And since she was always extremely affectionate towards her little brother, her parents decided to carry out an experiment. They left Sa-chi alone with their new-born baby, but kept the bedroom door ajar so that they could watch what she did. Delighted to have her wish granted, little Sa-chi tiptoed over to the cradle, leaned over the baby and said “Little brother, tell me what God is like. I’m beginning to forget.”
Let us remember to help each other to remember that God is always there even if we forget.
