Love Finds a Way
Stories from the Sunday School Times, Part 4
A grandfather found his grandson jumping up and down in his playpen, crying at the top of his voice.
When Johnny saw his grandfather, he reached up his little, chubby hands and said, “Out, Grampa, out!”
It was only natural for the grandfather to reach down to lift the little fellow out of his predicament; but as he did, the mother of the child turned the corner and said, “No, Johnny, you are being punished. You must stay in.”
The grandfather was at a loss to know what to do. The child’s tears and chubby hands reached deep into his heart, but the mother’s firmness in correcting her son for misbehavior could not be lightly taken.
Here was a problem of love versus law, but love found a way. The grandfather could not take the youngster out of the playpen so he crawled in with him.
