the scientist became an ant


An illustration from Tony Campolo:

Imagine for a moment that you are a scientist and you study ants. This may be a little hard to imagine, but give it a try. You are the world’s foremost authority on ants. And you have come to love ants very, very much. In fact, you’ve created a beautiful ant farm for many of them to live. It’s a wonderful world with everything they need. But one day you look down at the world you’ve created and you notice that your ants are not living up to their potential. They’re fighting. They’re not working together. They need help! So you send them little messages with suggestions & guidelines for them. You even inspire certain ants to be prophets, teachers, & role models for the others. But still they need help.

Now consider this, if you had supernatural powers what would be the best way to get your message across to the ants? That’s right! You could become an ant! You could take on the body of ant, and yet you would still have all your human knowledge and intelligence to help them. You would be the Ant Man! Fully Human-Fully Ant. Then you could teach them and show them personally face-to-face how to really live.

Merry Christmas!
