100:1.4 Children are permanently impressed only by the loyalties of their adult associates; precept or even example is not lastingly influential. Loyal persons are growing persons, and growth is an impressive and inspiring reality. Live loyally today—grow—and tomorrow will attend to itself. The quickest way for a tadpole to become a frog is to live loyally each moment as a tadpole.
I’ve always loved this quote because I can sometimes be impatient with my spiritual progress. When I remember these words I’m reassured and able to stop the negative self talk. I focus on the thought that the quickest way to reach my goal is to swim along with a sincere and loyal little tadpole heart until the day I can jump with the big frogs. I also like to keep another thought in mind – it’s not possible to fit a quart into a pint container!
