"Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest." Proverbs 6:6-8
OUR CHALLENGE TODAY!
There is a lesson to be learned from all of God's creation including even the smallest forms of life. God tells us here to spend some time watching an ant, what is it about an ant that he is using it to instruct us regarding work and success in life? The ant is always moving and always working towards a goal. The ant provides for its household and takes care of all that it has been given from God. 1Timothy 5:8 paints the picture of why this is so important, it says; "But if any provide not for his own, and especially those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel, (unbeliever). Consider the ant today and understand that work is good, be it housework, employment, or working for the Lord!
“Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.” Ephesians 4:28
“Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favor.” Proverbs 14:9
