Go to the Ant!

“Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:” (Proverbs 6:6).

As I was cutting the grass in my front yard today, I plowed over many large ant mounts. We are having quite an outbreak in our yard recently.

It seems, no matter how many times I spray them with poison, or run over their lofty colonies, they either rebuild the same one, or go make a new one.

They don’t stop and they don’t give up!

They do not stop and say, “Hey I am tired of building this same home over and over again.” “I don’t feel like making that long hike to those grains
of sugar.” They just do it.

How persistent are you about your work and the things that you need to do on a regular basis?

Do you say, “Why should I keep cleaning this bathroom? It’s only going to get dirty again the next time it is used.”
Well maybe you’re not that slack, but I am sure you can think of something in your life that you know you should do, that you are not persistently, or consistently, doing as much, or as often, as you should.

The next time you have the thought, “Why should I keep doing this over and over again?” think of those little ants out there just trudging along and be encouraged to keep on keeping on!
