The life of the ant is worthy of admiration and a proper study due to their orderly and composed lifestyle. In Proverbs 6:6-8, the Bible says:
"Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest."
However, here are 9 things believers need to learn about the ants:
1. The Ant is Self-Conscious. It is self-motivated since it has no overseer or guide. The only difference between the wealthy and the poor is typically self-motivation. The impoverished will constantly need someone to push them forward, whereas the wealthy will push themselves to succeed. The first symptom of poverty is that you don't do things until you are compelled to.
2. The Ant Acknowledges That It Is Responsible For Its Provision. Waiting for someone else to do your work kills creativity. Stop blaming others for your misfortunes. In the name of Jesus, you will not fail.
3. The Ant's Long-Term Plans The ants spend time preparing for rainy days. Learn to sow today so that you won't have to beg tomorrow. Pay correct tithe and give quality offering.
4. Ants are relentless in their pursuit of their goals. If you kick an ant mould, it will regenerate on the opposite side of your complex in a matter of hours. They feel they have a right to flourish regardless of the circumstances. Fight your way to the top of the food chain. Never surrender! If you get booted out of one business, get booted into another.
5. The Ant Knows the Difference Between a Season of Preparation and a Season of Enjoyment. Prepare today and enjoy later or enjoy today and suffer later. When you refuse to be serious with life today, know also that you will pay direly later.
6. When other ants build colonies, ants do not complain. Jealousy and envy are both destroyers of creativity. Nobody's accomplishment should put your success and prosperity in jeopardy. The wealthy's envy and jealousy is a primary reason why the unsuccessful fail, stay down, leave, and die in defeat. Jealousy is an ever-present parasite that saps people's delight. Celebrate those who have succeeded and prospered. You can't criticize the wealthy and expect to be wealthy.
7. Ants concentrate on their objective. Give your full attention to the task at hand. That's exactly what I'm referring to. You have a goal of winning a battle; you should concentrate solely on that task, with no press interviews, laughing, or joking.
8. For Ants, teamwork is important. Simply put, a team means "each of us achieves more when we work together." You can't attain your objectives and goals on your own, so collaborate with others. Others must be involved. You'll need other people's knowledge, wisdom, and strength. Great dreams will always necessitate the assistance of others in order to be realized. Ants don't accomplish anything on their own.
9. Ants are aware of the seasons. Ecclesiastes 3:1 is a passage from the book of Ecclesiastes. They understand what to do and when to do it. Ants use the season to organize their actions. You should be able to tell when to read and when to play. You should be able to tell when to be serious.
