A Gracious Word

Hoyt Byrum
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 out of the pit with all of their might. The group of frogs kept telling them to stop because 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 second 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 what the others were saying. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time. Death and life are in the power of the tongue. Proverbs 18:21 Let your gracious speech today encourage someone who is stuck in a pit.
