A COMMON TOUCH

 

    Nelson Mandela was more than the leader of South Africa.  He possessed a common touch that no amount of political coaching could inculcate.  When Mandela spoke at banquets, he made it a point to go into the kitchen and shake hands with every dishwasher and bus-boy.  On countless occasions, he would stop in the middle of a street or hallway to talk with a little child.  His questioning had the rhythm of a catechism.  “How old are you?” he would ask.  “Four,” the boy might whisper.  “Ah, you’re a big man!” he would reply with a smile.  “And what did you have for breakfast today?”

 

     Jesus had only three years to offer salvation to all generations.  Yet he found time to fellowship with little children.  Is there a child in your path today who needs a loving word or touch?
