"If a finger will cause you to burn in hell, cut it off and save a hand"
Watching the ant struggling to get the big feather to its hole was fascinating, i mean, where did this tiny creature got the sense it utilized this morning. We all know how ants scramble on sugar, honey, sweetened products and even raw foods, dry sticks ect but this morning, i saw this one pulling this big feather and right inside me, i was just saying "God's smallest creature".
Ants shares the same feelings like us.
This ant was faced with challenges as it battle to get the feather to its hole and at every challenge, the ant will pause and device a way to continue its journey. At one point, it had to negotiate a crack in the concrete about 10mm wide. After brief contemplation the ant laid the feather over the crack, walked across it and picked up the feather on the other side then continued on its way.I was fascinated by the ingenuity of this ant.
After some time the ant finally reached its destination – a flower bed at the end of the terrace and a small hole that was the entrance to its underground home. And it was here that the ant finally met its match. How could that large feather possibly fit down that small hole? Of course it couldn’t. So the ant, after all this trouble and exercising great ingenuity, overcoming problems all along the way, just abandoned the feather and went home.
(1)...The ant had not thought the problem through before it began its epic journey and in the end the feather was nothing more than a burden. Isn’t life like that! We worry about our family, we worry about money or the lack of it, we worry about work, about where we live, about all sorts of things. These are all burdens – the things we pick up along life’s path and lug them around the obstacles and over the crevasses that life will bring, only to find that at the destination they are useless and we can’t take them with us.
Imagine where you are heading to, can you get there with all these trouble and even if you get there, will the solution be for both?
Ask yourself now...
How big is my hole?
Will the feather enter?
Is this struggle worth it?
Isn't it time to let go?
