There is a story told about a frog that fell into a pothole. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t jump high enough to get out. His friends encouraged him, but he still could not muster up the strength to escape the deep pothole. They eventually gave up and left him to his fate.
However, the next day the frog was seen hopping around as usual. His friends said, “We thought you couldn’t make it out of the pothole!”
The frog replied, “I couldn’t, but a truck came along and I had to.”
Sometimes we just need the right kind of motivation!
Perhaps the best motivation we could ever have is to remember that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins!
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”—Romans 5:8
