Frogs

There are more than 3900 species of frogs living all over the world except the Antarctic. True frogs have two bulging eyes, long, strong, webbed feet (for leaping and swimming), and smooth or slimy skin. True frogs can leap up to twenty times their length. Toads, which are in fact frogs, have stubby bodies with short hind legs (for walking), and skin that is warty and dry. Frogs hatch from eggs and go through the tadpole stage before becoming adult frogs. Frogs come in a variety of shapes and colors and range in size from tree frogs, less than a half inch, to the giant Goliath frog, 12 inches. Some frogs are poisonous. Frogs drink and breathe through their skin which they also shed regularly and eat! A group of frogs is called an army. (A group of toads is called a knot.)

Many cultures worship the frog as God. This was true of the ancient Egyptians. In Exodus chapter eight God taught them that the frog is not God. When Pharaoh, the King of Egypt, refused to let God's people Israel go, God sent them so many frogs that they were sick of them.

God is other than His creation. There is no physical likeness of God. God fills the entire universe and more. He warns us against making idols which cannot see or hear or walk or talk (see Psalm 115), which must be carried and fed, which cannot care for themselves let alone people. We must worship the God of heaven, the Mighty Maker of all that is or was or ever shall be. We must worship the God Who sent His Son, becoming like us that we might bear the punishment of our sin (for the wages of sin is death) and give us the gift of Life (the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord). See Romans 6:23.

Idols are not God. The frog is not God. We must "turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein (Acts 14:15)." The LORD alone is God. Worship Him!
