Topic: ENGAGE YOUR HANDS!
The inspired writer of Proverbs wrote something very striking and remarkable; “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”. (Prov 6:6-8)
A careful study of the ways of the ants is enough to banish laziness, slothfulness and indolence from the life of a man. Observe, the ants do not have supervisor, a commander, an overseer and a ruler yet they engage the principle of diligence. Scripture says; “it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest”. Isn’t this amazing?
Proverbs 21:5 tells us; “The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes to poverty”. The colonies of the ants are often described as super organisms because the ants appear to operate as a unified entity, collectively working together to support the colony.
However, this should be the mindset of every Believer, where everyone works diligently to support one another and the gospel. Looking at the ants colonies, as small as they are, they have systematized and a well-structured association. They are been organized into group of soldiers and workers, and even the queen that apparently stays idle puts her full concentration on the production of further ants. To be continued…..
Prayer: Oh God, my Father, help me to work diligently in all my ways in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
