Two Frogs in a Pit

two_frogs_1

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods. Two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs 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 their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to 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 you not hear us?” The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

Moral of the story: An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day. One encouraging word can go a long way.

A word spoken in due season can change a life…

Prov 16:24 “Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.”

Prov 15:23 “A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!”
