VANITY OF LIFE…..

๐ŸŒฟOne Sunday morning, a wealthy man sat in his balcony enjoying the sunshine and his coffee when a little ant caught his eye; going from one side to the other side of the balcony, carrying a big leaf several times more than its size.

๐ŸŒฟThe man watched it for more than an hour. He saw that the ant faced many impediments during its journey, paused, took a diversion and then continued towards its destination.

๐ŸŒฟAt one point the tiny creature came across a crack in the floor. It paused for a little while, analyzed and then laid the huge leaf over the crack, walked over the leaf, picked the leaf on the other side then continued its journey.

๐ŸŒฟThe man was captivated by the cleverness of the ant, one of Godโ€™s tiniest creatures.

๐ŸŒฟThe incident left the man in awe and forced him to contemplate over the miracle of Creation. It showed the greatness of the Creator.
๐ŸŒฟBefore his very eyes was this tiny creature of God, lacking in size yet equipped with a brain to analyze, contemplate, reason, explore, discover and overcome.

๐ŸŒฟAlong with all these capabilities, the man also noticed that this tiny creature shared some human shortcomings.

๐ŸŒฟThe man saw about an hour later that the creature had reached its destination โ€“ a tiny hole in the floor which was entrance to its underground dwelling.

๐ŸŒฟAt this point the antโ€™s shortcoming that it shared with man was revealed.

๐ŸŒฟHow could the ant carry the large leaf it carefully managed to its destination into the tiny hole? It simply couldnโ€™t!

๐ŸŒฟSo the tiny creature, after all the painstaking and hard work and exercising great skills, overcoming all the difficulties along the way, just left behind the large leaf and went home empty-handed.

๐ŸŒฟThe ant had not thought about the end before it began its challenging journey and in the end the large leaf was nothing more than a burden to it.

๐ŸŒฟThe creature had no option, but to leave it behind, to reach its destination.

๐ŸŒฟThe man learned a great lesson that day. Isnโ€™t that the truth about our lives?

๐ŸŒฟWe worry about our family,
๐ŸŒฟWe worry about our job,
๐ŸŒฟWe worry about how to earn more money,
๐ŸŒฟWe worry about where we should live โ€“ 5 bedroom or 6 bedroom house.
๐ŸŒฟWhat kind of vehicle to buy โ€“ a Mercedes or Honda or BMW or a Porsche?
๐ŸŒฟWhat kind of dress to wear?
๐ŸŒฟAll sorts of things, only to abandon all these things when we reach the entrance to our destination โ€“ {THE GRAVE} when we realize we cannot enter our destination with all these things.

๐ŸŒฟWe donโ€™t realize in our lifeโ€™s journey that these are just burdens that we are carrying with utmost care and fear of losing them, only to find that at the end, they are useless and we canโ€™t take them with us.

*๐ŸŒฟThe ONLY TREASURE that lasts FOREVER is; OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR CREATOR – THE ALMIGHTY GOD*

๐ŸŒฟSo ask yourself, “AM I USING MY WHOLE LIFE TO SERVE HIM?

*๐ŸŒฟMay God guide us all and remove from our hearts the excessive love we have for this world..Amen*
