A scientist did a study on frogs. He told a frog, “Jump!” And the frog jumped four feet in the air. The scientist wrote in his journal, “Frog with four feet can jump four feet in the air.”
The scientist cut off one of the frog’s legs and said, “Jump!” The frog jumped three feet in the air. The scientist noted, “Frog with three legs jumps three feet.”
Then he cut off a second leg and said, “Jump!” The frog jumped two feet in the air. The scientist recorded, “Frog with two legs jumps two feet.” Then he removed another foot, and, predictably, the frog jumped one foot in the air.
Finally, the scientist removed the final leg. Then he ordered the frog with no legs, “Jump!” The frog just lay there, so the scientist repeated his order: “Jump!” Still, the frog did not jump.
With that, the scientist wrote, “Frog with no legs is deaf.”
Recovery Step: The scientist clearly misinterpreted the response of the legless frog. We all do that from time to time. And that’s why we need a Savior. I suggest this prayer: “Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you” (Psalm 25:5).
