abba is calling

Yesterday morning I realized that my son was out of eyeshot and was very quiet. I imagined he was up to some kid of mischief, but it ocurred to me that if I only give him attention when he is involved in mischief, it will encourage this behavior. So rather than try to catch him in the act, I offered a question aloud to the room: "Where's my son, I love him so much?" He promptly appeared from behind a counter to come see me looking for him and smiled.

When I recounted the story to my brother he pointed out that this was exactly HaShem's strategy with Adam HaRishon, when he said איכה - where are you?
