Which cast comparison is wiser because their behaviors and accomplishments?
Anyone who ever studied these tiny creatures will agree with King Solomon’s Wisdom Proverbs analogy advice to emulate the ant. These tiny creatures, accomplish monumental tasks in their short lifespans.
“There be four [things which are] little upon the earth, but they [are] exceeding wise. The ants [are] a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer.” Proverbs 30:24-25.
Substitute the word descriptions used by biologists, behavior patterns, to human virtues.
- Then consider these words and terms to describe ants in an inspiration religious article titled The Power of Unity, Lessons from the Ants.

What’s My Point?
After I read today’s news issues that describe the chaos and Congressional disagreements ten months after a lawful election, I came to two conclusions.
- Ants accomplish more because of their power of unity.
- Congress does not accomplish much because of their lack of unity.
In My Opinion
You would expect our legislators to understand their leadership roles as members of the Washington Congressional “cast.” Voters expect them to work together accomplish the promises them make to voters regardless of political parties.
Ants have a different senses identified by biologists. Voters expect their Congressman to have in the very least, common sense.
In my opinion, in a comparison of ant “castes” to our Congress “casts” in the halls of Washington, I believe the cast is out of balance by having far too many with morphological sense.
Because of this imbalance, the power of unity for our nation is impeded as evidenced by the present lack of accomplishments in the halls of Congress.
Morphological Sense Definition Excerpt
Characterized by traits absent in workers. Heads are usually enlarged because of powerful mandible (jawbone) muscles……….
Should Congress be trained in ant biology behaviors to inspire them to strive to accomplish the power of unity to benefit our nation?
Would our nation be a better place if our Congressional leaders possessed the above virtues?
Would you and I accomplish more if we emulated ant behavior in our lives?.
