I like to go and sit on my front step and watch ants... They toil in the hot sun. I enjoy watching them carry heavy things from our trash can. They are so small, yet can carry such heavy burdens.
Yesterday, a single ant was carrying a little caterpillar. The caterpillar was 3 or more times larger than the ant. I was trying to think of some motivational/scriptural reference to make this illustration work... but I am not the kind to tell the "Ant": Give Him your burdens, you can do more than you imagine and so forth... but on the flip side: Dearest Caterpillar: Don't worry, the end is near.
