LEARN FROM THE ANTS AND BE WISE. (Proverbs 6:6)
Ants teach us how to be self-motivated.
No one carries a whip behind the ant to ensure the work gets done.
No ant mothers nag their babies to get out of bed. These creatures are self-motivated, and need no captain to ensure they get their work done. Why?
Their work is for their own good!( Which, having no captain, overseer, or ruler, provides her supplies in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest” (Prov 6:7-8).
In the summer and in the harvest, food is plentiful, Yet the ant refuses to take her ease—instead working harder, storing up against the coming time of scarcity.
Ants teach us to look ahead in life and save for the raining day. Elephants is among one of the animals that have the largest brains on earth, but the cleverness of the tiny brain ants, has nothing to do with the large brains of of elephant and The wisdom of king Solomon,has nothing to do with old age of Methuselah.
Ants teach us the value of hard work.
(“How long will you slumber, O sluggard? When will you rise from your sleep?” (Proverbs 6:9))
He shows us the end of this man: “So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler, and your need like an armed man” (Prov 6:11).
Laziness will lead to poverty, with precious few exceptions. But there are no poor ants! Their hard work sustains them!
Christians need a willingness to work hard to earn their wages, and to work even harder to please their Lord. There is tremendous value in this!
Many of us might prefer to just stay in bed, but working hard anyway will bless our lives physically and spiritually!
Before men knew what is Government , Ants was already having its own Government.
We can also learn from the Ants in their system of government and apply most of it to our family homes,which may help us to organised our families and get things done.
Learn from the wise (The ants), and become wise in life.
