Two frogs

A group of hogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep well. When the other frogs saw how deep the well 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 well with all their might, The other frogs kept telling them to stop; that they were as good as dead because there was no way the little frogs could jump out of such depth. 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 all the time.

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 pass the storm. A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes to kill the motivation to live life in a meaningful way. Be careful of what you say. Speak life to those who cross your path. It is usually 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.
