MEDIOCRITY

Some scientist took a frog and dropped him in hot water. The frog hopped out – fast! They dropped him in a second time with the same result. Then they dropped him in a vat of cold water and he relaxed. What the frog didn’t know was that the vat of cold water had a fire beneath it. While the frog relaxed the water was heated ever so gradually. The frog sat there, the temperature of the water rose slowly, and before long the frog had been boiled to death.

Isn’t that a parable we all need to hear? We don’t know how it is in the frog world, but in our world it fits us to a “T”. Mediocrity is the fire. Man, represented by the frog, sits and relaxes until his mediocrity destroys him. Let him stay content with out goals and motivations just so long, and one day he will no longer care to move.

Therefore, “be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not vain in the Lord” (1 Cor. 15:58).

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
