A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and 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.

 

This story teaches two lessons:

 

1. 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 the day.

 

2. A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes

to kill them.

 

Be careful of what you say. Speak life to those who cross your

path. The power of words... it is sometimes hard to understand

that an encouraging word can go such a long way. Anyone can speak

words that tend to rob another of the spirit to continue in

difficult times. Special is the individual who will take the time

to encourage another.
