Power of words
A group of Frogs were traveling through the woods,
and two of them fell into a deep pit.
All the other Frogs gathered around the pit.
When they 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 of 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.
You see this Frog was deaf, unable to hear the others plea.
He thought they were Encouraging him the entire time.
An Encouraging Word to someone who is down
can Lift Them Up
and help them make it through the day.
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
