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.
Proverbs 6:6 - 8
Instinct? Survival skills? Lessons his mommy taught him?
The ant gathers what it needs for the journey.
There is no formal decree. The ants act.
There are no pronouncements from the upper echelons of ant-dom. The ants act.
So... let's consider there ways and be wise.
My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. Do you not say, 'Four months more and then the harvest'? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. Thus the saying 'One sows and another reaps' is true. I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.
John 4:34 - 38
Will you consider the ways of the ant? Will you labor in the field and serve your King?
