Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and AVOID them.
FROGS: A farmer came into town and asked the owner of a small restaurant if he could use a million frog legs. Naturally he was a little surprised and he asked the farmer where he intended to get a million frog legs. The farmer replied, "There is a pond behind my house that is full of frogs. They croak night and day and I can hardly get any rest. They are about to drive me crazy."
The owner of the restaurant agreed to take a couple of hundred of the frog legs from the farmer if he would deliver them the following week.
A week later the farmer returned looking a little sheepish. He had only four small frog legs. "I was mistaken. There were only two frogs in the whole pond but they sure were making a lot of noise."
LESSON: The next time you hear someone criticizing the teachers, the Preacher, some member or the church in general, remember the story. It is probably no more than a couple of chronic grouches who have nothing more to do than croak. (Pulpit Helps)
This illustration says it a whole lot better than I could have.
