Naaman was the captain of the army of the king of Aram. One time his army fought with Israel. The soldiers took some Israelites to be slaves. One little girl was taken and given to Naaman’s wife as a servant.
Our Bible Reading tells us that Naaman had a problem — he had leprosy (a terrible skin disease). The little girl said, “I wish that my master (Naaman) would meet the prophet (Elisha) who lives in Samaria. That prophet could heal Naaman of his leprosy” (verse 3b).
So Naaman went to see Elisha. Elisha told Naaman to go and wash in the Jordan River seven times. Naaman did this, and he was healed. Naaman also started believing in the one true God.
God used a little girl to show Naaman how he could be healed. God can use us, too, to lead people to Him. Look for opportunities to share the Good News about Jesus with someone you meet today!
