Love Never Gives Up

For over nine years now Muthee has brought laughter as well as challenges to Mama and Papa. With his quick wit and big glistening eyes, he could wiggle his way out of any trouble or form of work. The bars on our windows may have kept the thieves out but Muthee could easily swarm his way through them anytime he wished. Just about the time he exasperated us and we wanted to kick him out, his BIG smile would melt our hearts and Papa would give him ‘just one more chance’.
Then last year, around Christmas time, Muthee slipped out into the night and got involved in a serious crime. The kids he was with were all arrest but for some reason our village chief just warned Muthee. Ooooh how Papa Mike wanted to chase him off but then again he knew it would break our hearts to kick him out so he stayed ‘just one more time’.
To our surprise, this last year Muthee has finally changed! Every night he’s inside, though not always on time. He’s often asked to speak at the Christian Union in his public high school. He’s a valued team player on the soccer field. And he’s the best interpreter for Papa in Kenya.
In the Good News Bible I Corinthians 13 verses 6 and 7 read,” though love is not happy with evil…………….love never gives up, and its faith, hope and patience never fails.”
