    The 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.

    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 gives us thoughts to think about:
    1. An encouraging word to someone who is down can encourage them to achieve their goal.
    2. A destructive word to someone who is down can have negative effects. Be careful of what you say.

    The quote below was sent to me by Master Mark Russell. His quote describes "words" very accurately:
    "Words:
    The Snow may look smooth and soft,
    but the rocks underneath are sharp!"

    One last point,
    Are your words encouraging?
