Ant is a creature on earth that is small but unusually wise. The philosophy on the wisdom of these small creatures can serve as a good learning point for our life.
1. Ants never quit. If they’re headed somewhere and you try to stop them, they’ll look for another way. They’ll climb over. They’ll climb under. They’ll climb around. They keep looking for another way.
2. Ants think winter all summer long. You can’t be so naive as to think summer will last forever. So ants gather their winter food in the middle of summer. Things are easy in the summer time. It’s warm and resources are readily available. But the ant is thinking about gathering and working during this time.
3. Ants think summer all winter. During the winter, ants remind themselves, “This won’t last long; we’ll soon be out of here.” And on the very first warm day, the ants are out. If it turns cold again, they’ll dive back down, but then they come out the first warm day. They can’t wait to get out.
4. How much will an ant gather in the summer to prepare for the winter? The answer is, “As much as it possibly can!” So how much should you do in your life? As much as you possibly can!
