Learn From The Ants

Though ants can be highly destructive and cause much damage, we can also learn positive things from them. antsBefore Solomon apostatized he suggested the sluggard to consider the ways of an ant and learn!

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. (Prov 6:6-8)

A sluggard (lazy person) is not like the ants. The ant has no commander, overseer or ruler yet it thinks ahead and stores food when it can get it. Apparently, the sluggard doesn’t even have the sense of an ant to store food in the summer when it is available, but there is more!

Ants are creatures of little strength, yet they store up their food in the summer (Prov 30:25)

Though the ant has little strength it is wise. God used the ant as an object lesson for us to observe and learn from.
