The Rich Man and the Ant.

A rich man went on holiday, and whilst sitting outside enjoying the cool breeze and reading a newspaper; his attention was drawn to an Ant that was passing in front of him dragging a leaf.


The leaf was bigger than the Ant. The rich man took his time to scrutinize the way the ant was moving. Even though it was moving through a rocky path, water and many other barriers it did not let go of the leaf. Sometimes it had to climb walls and the leaf would fall but it would still go and take it back, at times it had to pull the leaf through the cracks in the rocks but it continued to force its way through, even as it fell in water it did not leave the leaf behind.

The Ant continued to struggle with leaf for quite a while, the Rich man noticed that it had finally reached at its ant hole. He was troubled because the leaf was bigger than the ant hole. With the entire struggle the ant had gone through dragging the leaf, it was in vain because the leaf was dumped at the mouth of the hole.
The Rich Man and the Ant. 
Do you know that there are many people who are dragging leaves around today? Many do not even know what kind of leaves they are dragging. Today I have come to show you the kind of leaf you are dragging. Do you know that heaven is just like an ant hole, you can’t just drag in anything? Listen to the word of God in 1 Corinthians 6 vs. 9-10 "Don’t you know that those doing such things have no share in the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who live immoral lives, who are idol worshipers, adulterers or homosexuals—will have no share in his Kingdom. Neither will thieves or greedy people, drunkards, slanderers, or robbers."

How many of us today are dragging leaves around in their lives? When the Ant was dragging the leaf it was very happy but did not know that it will not fit into its hole. Today some of you here have their own kind of leaves they are dragging and are happy with it but I have come to tell you that what you are dragging will remain at the mouth of the hole, it will not get you anywhere and will not enter into Heaven. We are not living here on earth just to satisfy our flesh but we are living for our souls to enter into Heaven. With that leaf you are dragging, will you enter into Heaven? How can one work hard in doing sinful and fleshly things before God?

How can a person like you opt to please the flesh whilst the soul suffers? Let go of that leaf that you are dragging and search for God whilst you have the time.

PLEASE SHARE!
