A Frog Story

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods. Two of them fell 
into a deep pit. All the other frogs gathered around the pit. When 
they saw how deep the pit was they told the two frogs that they were 
as good as dead. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump 
up out of the pit with all of their might. The other frogs kept 
telling them to stop, saying that they were as good as dead. Finally, 
one of the frogs took heed of what the other frogs were saying and 
gave up. He fell down and died. The other frog continued to jump as 
hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to 
stop the pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out.
When he got out, the other frogs said, "Did not you hear us?" The 
frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were 
encouraging him the entire time.
This story teaches two lessons. There is power of life and death in 
the tongue. An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them 
up and help them make it through difficult times. A destructive word 
to someone who is down, can be what it takes to kill them. Be careful 
what you say. Speak life to those who cross your path. Words are so 
powerful, its sometime hard to understand that an encouraging word 
can go such a long way. Keep this in mind, and always be careful and 
think about what you have to say.


"Neither doctrinal purity nor diligent labor will ever be a substitute for passionate devotion to God."
