Life can take unexpected and painful turns. One little Jewish girl found herself a prize of war. She became a slave, the property of the Syrian army general Naaman. Yet the story that unfolds is contrary to what we might expect. Instead of self-pity, she pities her master; instead of wishing evil upon her captor's family, she offers hope for their well-being.
In a simple act of faith, a little girl suggested to her mistress that Naaman ought to see the prophet of God in Samaria. She was sure Elisha would be able to heal Naaman. There must have been a note of conviction in the girl's suggestion, because Naaman took her seriously, eventually being healed.
Sometimes, all we can do is point people to God. young or old, God is willing to use us as we are. We don't have to be gifted, just available to God. Jesus reminded His disciples in Acts 1:8 "You shall be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." He says be witnesses, not just do witnessing.
