Book: Proverbs 6
“Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones. Learn from their ways and become wise!”
God created an incredible world with all of the plants and animals living in it. There is so much to learn just through observing His creation. The way ants work and store up in the summer for winter is no exception.
Along my walking path there are two ant colonies. I have watched them grow over several years. When the sun is out (or on the west coast when it is not raining) the ants are everywhere around their mounds bringing in food, supplies and more grass/sticks to cover their home. All of them are working hard. On the wet days, as I walk by the mounds, there is not any sign of the ants. They are all inside doing what they can do in their home. From the outside it looks like the colony has died but if I was to put a stick into the mound I would quickly be met with angry ants.
How does this wisdom apply today? Let me make a few suggestions for you to consider and you may have a few others as well. First of all it is important that we are planning and working for the future. When things are going well, put aside for the future. Secondly, Do what can be done today and don’t leave it until tomorrow. I have worked with people who have said to me, “I don’t know what to do?”. My response is always, “Do those things you can today even if they seem small”. There is always something that needs and can be done. It is amazing how by doing the little things it creates big results.
As a Kingdom builder, how does this wisdom apply in your life right now? Talk it through with your heavenly Father who desires the best for you!
