One In A Thousand

A few years ago I visited an elementary school in South Africa. The children there didn’t get a lot of visitors from the U.S. so they had a ton of questions. My niece who was still in college was traveling with us became very popular with the girls and most of their questions were directed at her. Thinking that she was close to their age they clung to her very word. I think they were quite amazed that someone so young got to travel away from home just to visit their school. Whenever I think of my niece at that school, I am reminded that in the midst of so many friends near and far away, God is always who we need God to be, that one friend in a thousand friends – not because we identify with God but because God identifies with us.
