Fw: The Power Of Words

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 teaches two lessons:

1. 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 through
the day.

2. 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.
