UNITY Learn It From Ants

(A Lesson to Human Beings)

Ants-build-a-bridge-by-sacrificing Credit:

Here is a great lesson to learn from the insignificant little creatures on earth!

“The Ants”.

They do everything in unity.

But we, with our disunity most of the time fail miserably.

Let’s learn “UNITY” from them for our good!

Ants’ work in groups,

And achieve their goal in unity

Alas! Men lack this and fail.

NOTE: Let us have a look at the lives of ants.

There are a good number of lessons, we the human beings can pick up from these insignificant creatures.

Though they fail sometimes in their attempts they never give up.

They try and try and try until they reach their task.

They gather their food in group in unity.

These little creatures struggle to build their homes on earth.

But the giants of earth, we the human beings

quite often destroy it knowingly or unknowingly.

But they never give up and find a new place and re-build it.

But Alas! The humans most often fail miserably in their attempts

And get frustrated and leave the goal behind the way.

They attempt to do their things selfishly and try to carry it alone,

And utterly fail in many of their attempts.

They fail in their attempts mainly due to the lack of this unity.

In the Holy Bible, in the book of Proverb-Solomon the wisest man ever lived on earth said, and I quote:


“Go to ant, thou sluggard; Consider her ways and be wise, which having no guide, overseer or ruler,

Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.” *1


And the wisest man again said:

“Four things on earth are small, yet they are extremely wise:

Ants are creatures of little strength,

Yet they store up their food in the summer” *2


The ants come first in that list; though they are small in size they are wise.

And do their things wisely and reach their goal.

But, Alas!! We the human beings lack this “unity”

And we fail miserably in all our attempts.

Why can’t we look at these little wise creatures

And pick up these precious lessons for our good.

Let’s learn this and practice in our daily life.

  1. Great story Philip ,
    and I like unity working together makes strong.
    This reminds me of a story when we were kids.
    There was a cricket always making noise ,(we said playing violin)
    and laughing at the ants, because they were always working .

    The ants gathering food for the winter and said to the cricket you better do this too,
    but the cricket continued playing violin.

    When the winter came the ants had it cozy and warm and all full of food.
    The cricket had nothing and had to die :)

    Does not fit to India, especially in the south it is not as cold :)

    But the ants with the teamwork were safe :)

    Hope you like the story

    Well said Philip. Ants are one such wonderful creature living on earth known for its unity. Whatever they do they do it together. One cannot spot an ant alone. I admire it for that. We got a learn a lot from them. Nicely written and a good read.
