The Prince, The Nightingale, And The Bullfrog

The Prince, The Nightingale, And The Bullfrog…

Once upon a time there lived a frog, a nightingale, and a prince. The nightingale used to sing the most beautiful songs with the most beautiful of voices. The frog just croaked.

Whenever the nightingale started to sing, the frog would start to croak. This was very disconcerting for the nightingale. Whenever the frog started croaking, the nightingale would stop singing. It was driving the nightingale crazy.

One night, the prince was walking by the nightingales’ tree. He stopped, hoping to hear it sing. There was no singing. He could only hear the croaking of the frog.

“Aren’t you going to sing?” asked the prince, “I know you have a beautiful voice.” “Sing!” replied the nightingale. “How can I sing when all day long I have to listen to that stupid bullfrog and those horrible noises he makes. Don’t you hear it?” “Yes,” said the prince, “I do hear it. But I wouldn’t hear it if you’d stop complaining and start singing.”

Let the one who has ears hear… You don’t have to be dealing with that bullfrog. You could be singing. Start singing to the glory of God and the croaking will disappear.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100

Praise God for His blessings in spite of and over all the little annoyances of the day.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
