It’s not enough to be busy, so are the ants. The question is, what are we busy about?
Henry David Thoreau
Are you busy? I know I am. My calendar is chock full of appointments. My to-do list is long with urgent things to do. Some days, I’m like the ant. Busy. Industrious. Collecting. Eating. Surviving.
But busy does not mean meaningful. Industrious does not mean worthwhile. Collecting, eating, and surviving do not mean a well-lived life.
Give, because life is not meant to consumed by industrious yet insignificant activities. Give, because you have important things to do. You are not an ant.
