Max Lucado writes: “Accept God’s permission to be who he made you to be. A frog can flap its little legs and never fly. Some of you have been flapping a long time – too long. Your heroes are birds; your mentors are birds. You think you should fly and feel guilty that you can’t. Enough of this bird-brained thinking! Be a frog! It’s okay to jump. You have some strong thighs beneath you, so get hopping.”
