[MOL] Fwd: Meaning of Words...


---- Begin included message ----


 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
 frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up.  He
 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.
 The power of words....it is sometimes 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.

 Be Special to others.

God Bless YOu,
