When you sail through life with flying colors, stay humble or you’ll stumble. Two ducks and their frog friend lived in a pond, where the frog often tried to show himself smarter and better than the ducks—a better swimmer, singer, dancer, visionary, etc. When the hot summer peaked, the ducks decided to fly away to a larger pond. The frog suggested a creative plan so he could tag along. The ducks held in their bills the opposite ends of a strong stick, and the frog hung on to the middle of the stick with his mouth. As they flew high above, a farmer exclaimed, “What a brilliant idea! I wonder who thought of that?” The frog couldn’t resist. He said, “I did. I did.” And that was his end. “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverb 16:18).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
