Wisdom from the Ants
Wisdom From Small Things
Proverbs 30:24-25 NKJV
There are four things which are little on the earth, But they are exceedingly wise: The ants are a people not strong, Yet they prepare their food in the summer;
The ant is a very tiny creature in size, but for what they lack in size they compensate in numbers. An ant colony contains between, 100000 and 500000 ant workers. Though these insects are tiny, they possess much wisdom that we can learn from. Foremost, the ant is a hard worker, all you need is to observe ants in motion, and you will notice that they carry up to 20 times their body weight.
Ants always work as a team and that’s why they live in colonies. In working together as a team, these tiny creatures can do so much for the benefit of all.
Ants have the wisdom to collect their food in the summer, preparing for winter. As tiny as they are, they have the wisdom to know the season will change and they have the wisdom to store food for their survival. This reminds me of Joseph in Egypt, gathering during the 7 years of plenty preparing for the 7 years of famine.
The folly of many people today is that they do not recognize that a season of death is coming. The Bible says that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
Jesus came to seek and save that which was lost. Do you have the wisdom of the ant to secure your future?
Ants work together as a team, and they accomplish much. What can the church learn from this?_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
