A group of frogs were traveling through the woods and two fell into a deep pit. All of the other frogs gathered around the pit. When they saw how deep the pit was they told the other two that they would never get out. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump out of the pit. The other frogs kept telling them to stop and that they were as good as dead.

Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and he sat down and gave up. He fell dead. The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again the other frogs that were gathered around kept shouting for him to stop the pain and suffering and just give up and die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out.

When he made it out the other frogs asked " why did you continue jumping didn't you hear us?"The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought that they were encouraging him the whole time.

his story holds two lessons:

1.The 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 what you say speak life to those who cross your path.

It is sometimes hard to understand that an encouraging word can go 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 takes time to encourage another.

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up. Just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

I think this should be posted in every Oncologist's office :!:

This would be so much easier if it would let us cut and paste again. :roll:
