(This post is not connected with the post entitled, "The Wrath of the Lord is Peaceful". I enjoy the fact that Iron sharpens Iron. Peace to my brothers and sisters in Christ.)Run over a bulgy, slimy, croakin frog with your car and what do you get? Why, ya get a flat frog! That's what ya get. He was doin quite well before you came along. But since you were in your car you hardly noticed the slight vertical jolt. Perhaps you were talking to someonebeside you. Or maybe you were admiring the lovely swamp scene. Or(perhaps the best case scenario) maybe you squished em while avoiding that gator.How many of us are, spiritually speaking, prettier than a bulgy, slimy, croakin frog? And how many times have we been run over by a distracted Christian? Don't it just flatten our hearts to be hurt by someone who should have loved us? And don't we go off cryin to our Father that we don't feel so good? Now, mind you, I'm not making funof taking our troubles to our Heavenly Father.Notice in the story of the flattened frog I presented reasons we would all excuse. We wouldn't blame the driver for what happened. Not that very many really care about frogs anyway. But just as a matter of sincerity. Ok, we got hurt. It is possible our pain is being misdirected. Remember His words: "Father, forgive them. For theyknow not what they do."By His Grace, and with certain joy.
Spiritually speaking I am much uglier than a dead frog, infact without Christ Jesus I am dead in my trespasses and sin. :)
Gives the fairy tale of the frog and the princess a new meaning..... LOL
