…you should watch what the ants do and learn from them. Ants have no ruler, no boss, and no leader. But in the summer, ants gather all of their food and save it. So when winter comes, there is plenty to eat.
ANTS NEVER QUIT
Have you ever tried to stop an ant while it was in route to a destination? If you have, then you know that an ant will never quit. When something unexpected blocks their path, they don’t stop to analyze it, mull it over or cry over the scenario. They simply keep on moving over, under or around their obstacle. They keep searching for another path. So, be like an ant. Never quit looking and quit moving towards your destination.
ANTS THINK WINTER ALL SUMMER
Just as Joseph helped prepare the land of Egypt for a drought, you can’t be so naïve as to think summer will last forever. Ants gather their food in the summer to prepare for the months ahead. Yeah, things look great in the summer but they sense the hard times coming. It is important to think ahead and be realistic.
ANTS THINK SUMMER ALL WINTER
When the days get cold, ants know that it won’t last long. They tell themselves, “summer is just around the corner.” On that first warm day, they start right back up again. Here in the south, it can get warm in the middle of a cold day. The ants will come out and get some work done but dive right back down when the cold settles in. They remain positive though and at the first warm day of summer, they get busy again. Take a lesson from the ant, stay positive even when the weather seems bleak.
Finally, how much food will the ant gather and store up during the summer in order to prepare for the winter? All that he possibly can. Do all you can….and more! It’s important to you and every other “ant” in your colony.
