Frogs are better off

"I have heard it said, “God didn’t die for frogs. So he was responding to our value as humans.” This turns grace on its head. We are worse off than frogs. They have not sinned. They have not rebelled and treated God with the contempt of being inconsequential in their lives. God did not have to die for frogs. They aren’t bad enough. We are. Our debt is so great, only a divine sacrifice could pay it."
(Piper, John. Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die. Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2006. Print. 29)
