Powerful Inspiring Story of Two Frogs

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.
