Up and at ‘Um Able Ant!

“Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, which, having no captain, overseer or ruler, provides her supplies in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest.” Proverbs  6:6-8

The ant is an industrious creature. Small in size, but wise in its ability to optimize its time, skills and resources. Here are some important characteristics of the ants.

1. DILIGENCE: Ants are never lazy! Neither are they poor or hungry! Their efforts, and hard work sustains them! The same diligence will result in you being blessed physically, spiritually and financially!

2. DETERMINATION: “Get ‘er done” must have originally been an ant byword. They need no captain, they are self starters. They seem to manifest an attitude of: If not me, who? If not here, where? If not now, when?

3. DISCERNMENT: They store their food during seasons of plenty, so that they will have adequate amounts in times of scarcity. 

4. DEDICATION: Teamwork and unity are apparent. Ants accomplish more by working together than by working alone. Often a number of them will be seen moving an object much too heavy to be moved alone.

5. DEVOTION: They are all out for the Ant Kingdom. We too should live an all out life for the Kingdom of God. “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.”  Matthew 6:33 

Pray, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as in Heaven.”
