The Almighty Ant

The Almighty Ant 7

One of the greatest examples of diligence is the almighty ant.

Picture the ant carrying a bit of food that’s much too big a load for it’s back.

Yet – even when the ant continually drops it, the ant picks it up, and carries on.

Driven by hunger – the ant stays fixed on it’s destination.

This hunger is the motivating force.

It keeps each ant at task all summer so there’s enough food through the winter.

What a simple lesson on the importance of work and how it pays off.

‘Take a lesson from the ants…Learn from their ways and become wise!’   Prob. 6:6 NLT

Very simply:

We were created to work.

    Debbie if I may ,your mindset regarding the ant sums up how little we appreciate what we have. In the world today the tiny ant of whom works so hard to substane hurger , should allow all of us to understand how blessed we are.Your thought made me stop and think .A walk to the corner store and I can full my hunger.Imaing the worry of what will I eat all winter ,or even a day or two,allowed me to feel embarrassed as to the the thought of how I complain at times about trivial material things that I offten feel I should have. After all I always worked so hard!!! Thank you and the tiny ant for that large lesson.
