A little pig went down in the mud. The frogs were afraid that they might be hurt or crushed by the moving little pig. One of the frogs said, "Why do you not warn us that you’re coming to the mud so we leave it for you and wouldn’t be hurt or killed."
The pig said, "I don’t care. If you were as big as I’m you wouldn’t die."
The little frog started eating like crazy in order to get bigger and bigger. Her mother told her not to do that but she continued to eat and get bigger until she exploded and died.
I wish to listen to my mother, the church, not to a pig,
For my enemy appears in a form of a friend,
Encouraging me with greed and pride,
That will lead to the destruction of my body and soul.
Teach me to learn from You Lord,
You are my real food and my glory.
The Traces of the Nails
