I have long noticed that ANTS seem to carry some dead ants out of their colony. Over the years, I saw it as a ritual, but could not place perfect specifics on it.
This ignorance was to end last week when my curiosity led me to more research. What did I discover?
When an Ant dies, it begins to emit an Oleic acid that is harmful to living ants. Not just that; due to the deadness of that Ant, it can attract other small predators to invade their colony for food.
It therefore feels like these ‘people’ carry far from them folks that spread ‘death’. Many times we have these folks around us who spread fear, hate and failure into our minds. Yes, we love them, but we also love our family and self. So, we move our relationship with them to where we suffer no mental or spiritual loss.
“Do not be tricked by false words: evil company does damage to good behaviour. Be awake to righteousness and keep yourselves from sin…” (1Cor. 15:33, BBE Version).
When people have probabilities to stain your life, keep yourself from them. This truth, these Ants further cemented in me.
The conclusion of this Article will be for Guys and Husbands.
This conclusion, as learnt from Ants is beneficial for Guys and Husbands To learn from.
When Ants know that one of them is dead and now emitting the Oleic Acid as previously explained, due to the high regard they have for the Queen of their Colony, they with haste take out the dead ant so that no epidemic affects their queen or invites a pest to devour her.
Like they so much value their Queen, so also should the Masculine gender in the house or home take steps to ensure that wife is not polluted by gossiping ladies.
Specifically, Paul told Timothy in 1Tim. 5:13 to be careful of women who have “learnt to be idle, wandering from house to house and become busybodies…”. Why? Truly, women gossip more.
If as a Man, you begin to notice gossips around your wife, you’re indirectly seeing pollution coming closer to you. Like Ants, take out the ‘Dead Ants’ that wanna corrupt your ‘Queen’.
Women seem to find it harder avoiding their gossip friend, due to not wanting to offend her. That’s why Bro, the onus lies on your Masculine make-up to aid her in doing it- either by boosting her emotions to do it herself or you facing the Gossip bae yourself.
Better to make the ‘Dead Ant’ angry, than your ‘Colony’ nice, but corrupted.
