The Unfortunate Frog

frog

My favourite sin analogy is the one about the frog.

Catch him and stick him in boiling water straight away, and the intense heat will frighten him, burn him and tell his senses that the best thing to do is jump out quickly.

But popping the little green creature into a pan of cold water and turning on the heat, will make him stay where he is.

He is not alert to danger and as the water warms up slowly, his body quickly adjusts to the temperature.

Eventually the poor froggie will be cooked alive, all without a struggle from him.

God loves us greatly, so my prayer for me and you today is that we’ll look around and see the steam and bubbles and realise that the water we’re in is hotting up before we turn into poached human.

Have a really blessed day.

Please note that there may be ads at the bottom of this blog. They are NOT authorised by me and I’ve noticed some not so nice ones. They can be distracting I know, and I’d like nothing better than to have them removed. And I can…for a fee. In the meantime, please ignore them. They have been put on by the WordPress bigwigs because that’s how they gain money from a site that most of us don’t pay for. Thanks for your understanding.

  1. That’s simple to answer . . . it’s the lesson; the teaching; the understanding; and finally … the lesson learned before the lesson needed to be learned.

    As one very much loved Pop Larkin would have said: “Perfick”. :o)
