Although Ants appear to be the minutest creature, yet the wisest man on earth -King Solomon submitted himself to their tutelage.
King Solomon enrolled in the School of Ants and learnt great wisdom about life through the wisdom he observed in the way Ants live.
According to his record in Proverbs 6:6-8
“Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:
Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provides her meat in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest.”
Having understood that, I have compiled this 10 Great wisdom of Ants that will change your life forever.
1. Ants are good time managers
The Ants are very wise and understand timing perfectly well. They know when they should be doing a particular activity and they stick to their schedule.
They know when it is summer or winter. They are not distracted by anything outside their daily schedule. They are good planners of time.
They know when to work and when to rest.
2. Ants dream big
Imagine that ants can build an ant hill as big as or even bigger than a human house. They are great architects. They know what they want. They dream big and are ready to give it all it takes to achieve it.
In the ant kingdom, laziness is forbidden. Every ant is busy working extremely hard to handle it’s own responsibility. There is no room for laziness.
That’s why King Solomon said, ” Go to the ant, you lazy man and learn…”
4. Ants are self motivated
Ants don’t need your encouragement to know what is good for them. They don’t need any leader, Preacher or motivational speaker to ginger them or boost their morale.
They are purpose driven, vision oriented, have a sense of defined responsibility and direction. They are totally self motivated!
5. Ants are selfless
Ants are not selfish in their motives. If one ant finds food somewhere, it goes to tell others. If one ant finds another dead, it goes to tell others and together they carry the corpse.
6. Ants greet each other
Ants love, respect and greet each other. Even in their busyness, you will observe them from time to time k*ss one another as they pass.
In other words, they show care for one another.
7. Ants are excellent managers
Ants understand the need to save what they get in the summer, store it up and use it in the winter when they are hibernating, need to conserve energy and cannot go out to get food.
They don’t consume all they get at once. Savings is their culture. They are good financial managers.
8. Ants Build their own home
It is hard to find ants who don’t have a place to stay. No matter how little, ants plan for their own home and together they build their own shelter.
9. Ants maximize their potential
Did you know that an ant can carry a weight 10 to 50 times his own body weight? That is superhuman strength.
Ants may look feeble but they are great weightlifters. They employ great strength and endurance to enable them accomplish their goals.
10. They have unity and cooperation.
This is one highly admirable quality of ants. It is not rare to see them working together with one mind and purpose.
Sometimes you wonder how they communicate their intention or share their vision.
Talk about team work? The ants deserve a huge thumbs up for that!
