À someone were to throw a frog in hot water it would jump out, but if they put it in cold water and gradually heat the water up it would boil to death.
People today are so much like the frog, and a good example would be television. When it first started it was called the golden age, and television programs had morals, and lessons. If they had started television with the programming that is on television now, then no one would have bought a television set. So the started it off as cold water it was nice and made people feel good about watching it. They slowly added heat with witches and magic. Then they introduced adult channels for their eyes only, and now with The internet almost anything goes.
There is a reason they call it programming. The same can be said for most bad habits it’s starts off small and before someone knows it they are boiling in it. Things continously get worse the music the movies and the internet. I believe this is why it is so important to stay in prayer and meditation, because without it, it would be hard not to conform to the world. It’s important to set ourselves a part from the evil of the world, because if we are not, then how will the world see the Light. We are to be a reflection of Jesus, that is the positive life. A positive person is held to a higher standard, because the world is watching waiting for them to slip up. It’s what someone does when they think no one is watching that matters. It also matters when someone messes up, does that person stay down, or do they get back up, and regain their momentum by being positive? Someone should not be the frog in hot water, but instead test the waters, continously pray and seek guidance. I love you all, and will be back soon.
