You lazy fools, look at an ant.
Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two.
Nobody has to tell it what to do.
All summer it stores up food;
at harvest it stockpiles provisions.
So how long are you going to laze around doing nothing?
How long before you get out of bed?
A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there,
sit back, take it easy—do you know what comes next?
Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life,
poverty your permanent houseguest! (The Message Bible)
Have you ever noticed how quickly ants rebuild when their anthill is destroyed? You may have been knocked down but you are not knocked out. There’s a lot to learn in life from the ant. Ants don’t give up. They keep pushing through. It’s about being diligent. “Patience and diligence, like faith, removes mountains.” William Penn
DECLARATION: What’s your mountain, your situation that you need to overcome?
Make that choice now to be more diligent.
