Ant Quality- 3rd Part

Here comes the 5th Ant quality - Perseverance

I had once seen some ants carrying a big dead insect, walking quickly from one side to another. Suddenly, I decided to play a joke on these little ants. I used my finger to throw the insect. To my surprise, several ants had still bitten the insect tightly though the insect was turned over. A moment later, other ants came to surround the insect, carried it again and then went on walking.
This is called perseverance.


This is story of an Ant named ‘Tinki’ who was 13 year old, she was very poor and her father died in an accident few years back. Her mom was suffering from a disease and could not work properly. Tinki was a strong Ant. She used to travel day and night in search of food to take care of her mother.

One day her mother’s health worsened. It became tough for her to breathe. Tinki got scared and went to her best friend to ask for help. Her friend told her to go and search for a dead insect and feed it to her mother. After which she will never fall ill.

There was one very big problem; this type of insect was found on very high mountains. Still, Tinki decided to travel to this highest peak to save her mom. She left home early morning on her journey.
On her way to the mountain, there was a forest of wild Animals, Tinki was very careful as she was tiny and could be stamped under Elephants feet anytime. Thankfully she crossed the Jungle and then started walking up the mountain. It was 12 hour journey.

She reached the top of the mountain very early and was very tired. But, she continued her search for the dead insect and to her luck she found one!

The insect was very heavy. She tried carrying the insect on her head. As she dragged the insect along, she failed thrice. She could not move as the weight of the insect was very heavy. She again tried. She failed.  She was very disappointed with herself and sat quietly for 10 minutes. After that she again tried, this time she was able to carry along the insect at her back.

She finally reached home after 5 long days! Her friend was there with her mother. They gave the insect to her mother after which her mother’s health improved. Tinki was very happy, but she broke her back. She did not tell this to her mother. After few days her mother was on her toes! Tinki was very happy. Now her mother looked after her and they loved happily ever after!

So, just like Tinki Ant, no matter what happens, never stop trying and move ahead. Whatever you may go through, don't lose faith but persevere! The evil will try to distract you in your conquest to salvation; through persecutions, calomnies, people will talk bad of you and your faith,through  temptations and injustices. 
Believe in God's Greatness and Promises and Persevere.

 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12)

God bless you, Thash.
