Life Lessons - Tiny Ants
Created By Sompong Yusoontorn
What is the connection between
the might man and a tiny ant?
Man, the crown of all creations with his great
wisdom, is called the ‘Homo Sapiens’.
But an ant, a tiny insect too tiny to be seen,
is nothing to compare it with a man.
Yet Solomon the Great tells us
to go to the ant
And learn lessons
There are three kinds of ants in
a colony: workers, queen, and males.
Each kind of ant does different job. They are
so well organized, that they carry out their
entire task through division of labor.
Nothing is left undone in the Ant colony,
because of the well-organized structure,
which has already been put in place.
This is a serious lesson
for individuals who are
Lesson 1 : Ants are well-organized
Ants have an unbelievable spirit
of unselfish unity.
If they find out something eatable
They pass on the
Message to others!!!
Lesson 2 : Unselfish unity
The ants share everything they get.
They never eat anything alone!!!
They show great interest in sharing!!!
But what do we humans do?
If we find something immediately we try
our best to hoard it in a secret place,
unreachable to anybody.
Only very few have
Experienced the taste
and pleasure of sharing!!!
Lesson 3 : Spirit of sharing
The sense of discipline among
the ants is really amazing!!!
How pleasant is their
Without any dispute or accident
they move about in order.
Think of man’s spirit of division. Everywhere
in life he finds loopholes to divide.
He is more interested
in division than in unity!!!
Lesson 4 : Amazing sense of discipline
The active nature of the ants attracted
Solomon very much. That made him
rebuke the lazy man saying,
He reminds man to be
Forewarned and Active!!!
“You idler, go to the ant, watch
her ways and be wise.”
“She has no master, no steward
or overseer. ”
“She secures food in summer and stores
up provisions during harvest time.”
Lesson 5 : Action in time
Ants always keep themselves
busy all day long!!!
That is a very classical
Attribute of the Ant!!!
However, they are busy doing something,
unlike many individuals who are busy
The question is; what are we
To be tireless implies never
slacking or stopping!!!
Lesson 6 : Ants are tireless
Whenever an obstacle is placed in the
way of Ants, they always find a way
round such obstacles.
Whatever is blocking
We must never give up so easily
in the face of obstacles!!!
There are many obstacles in life
that have to be overcome.
As long as you keep trying
you will get past
Lesson 7 : Ants are persistent
Ants may be smallish in nature,
but never underrate their speed.
This is a big lesson for those
Sluggish in doing things
or taking decisions!!!
Lesson 8 : Ants have incredible speed
When it is winter, they store up enough
food in their colony.
During winter, when the cold is becoming
unbearable, they never lack anything!!!
Ants are better planners than
It was not raining, when
Noah built the Ark.
He had to plan ahead,
because He knew…
The flood would
Lesson 9 : Ants are great planners
Ants are noted for carrying objects
that are bigger than them!!!
This is only made possible through
sheer hard work and determination!!!
Ants are not scared of heavy task,
but rather take pleasure in lifting
these objects to their colony.
If we don’t look at how big a task is,
we would easily accomplish task…
Lesson 10 : Ants are strong and hardworking
Everything an ant does is for the benefit
of the colony and they will work
until they are done.
Some are tunneling, some are moving
material and others are looking for food!!!
If any of the ants is not working
with the team…
It will be notice!!!
Lesson 11 : Ants have teamwork
Lesson 12 : Taking Care Of A Pet
Ants do not require much maintenance
through their lives there is some care
that needs to be taken for them.
It is important to keep their area clean
and the tank they live is stable!!!
If the enclosure is moved too quickly or
tipped over the tunnels might collapse.
Showing the responsibility of taking care of
the ants would show they are getting ready…
To take on a larger put
such as a dog!!!
Watching ants at work and play
is amazing for us.
The lessons from these tiny ants are
great challenges for modern humanity.
The lessons they teach
should lead us…
Thank You Very Much
Ants make the most
of every opportunity.
The problem is that many people live
their lives without taking advantage
of their opportunities.
Follow the ants’ lessons
and you will succeed!!!
