The Story of the Ant,

Proverbs 6:6-8  "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."

I have thought of this verse many times throughout my life time and always saw how busy the little ants were often carrying something twice their size and always so very busy.

While we were in the Caribbean Islands, I was lounging by the pool one day and a little ant crawled up on my lounge and without thinking I flicked him off into the pool.  I looked down and he was struggling so hard not to drown, my heart went out to him and I reached down and saved him from drowning, he scampered off on his noble errand.

I have a different outlook on ants today.  That little thing was so helpless there in that big swimming pool and he was doing his very best to stay afloat, his little legs were working so hard to keep alive.

Are we like the little ant, trying to stay spiritually afloat in this sinful world?  God is waiting to reach down and save us, lift us out of our sins and plant our feet on solid ground.  The Word of God is our solid ground and we need to spend time with Him each day in prayer and study of His Word.

We can be like the little ant and scurry away sharing what we have learned from our time with God each and every day.  We can go about our work and talk to God as we are working and not just talking to Him but listen, He may just have something special to impress upon your mind as you contemplate on His love and care for you.

God speaks to us through His Word, and also when we are obedient to His Word, He can impress our hearts of things we need to do or what ever is on His mind for us at the moment.

God bless you as you walk with Him day by day and don't forget to be industrious like the little ant and Thank God for rescuing you from your sins and saving you.  Grandma Joan
