Bible Proverb

Go to the ant thou sluggard and consider her ways, and be wise.

Proverbs 6:6

What is the most successful colony in the world? Ants.

According to scientific reports, ants do not steal, cheat, lie, murder, or aimlessly meander in their work.

What are they doing right?

How can we copy them? Good questions.

Here's how:

Ants are very social creatures with a high sense of purpose and community. They work hard and they play hard. They follow a handful of simple rules based on progress and productivity. And they perfected the art of delegation a long time ago.

There is no need to reinvent the wheel here. The ant is always working, always productive and always building. So let us go to the ant and learn from her ways

She lies in wait in the summer's heat and prepares in winter food, store in summer for winter, that thine may eat, and the household may be full of blessing.

The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their food in the summer and gather their meats in the harvest.

Ants have no leader nor ruler, yet they all work together with a common purpose and a common goal.

Ants have no strong defence, yet they are safe from enemies.

The ant is a busy little creature, isn't she? She never seems to sit still and there's always plenty of work to do. Ants have many different jobs: They build the home, manufacture food, clean, raise the young and protect the colony.

The Bible proverb above says, "Go to the ant ye sluggard; consider her ways and be wise."

What wisdom can we gain by observing a little insect with a modest (some say tiny) brain?

Ants have mastered group effort. They share food and tasks. If a worker discovers a profitable food source, she communicates it to the whole colony by laying down a scent trail.

Her antennae are more sensitive than human fingertips, allowing her to feel what humans can't and find what humans can't see.

She's loyal to her queen and will sacrifice herself for her friends.

She plans for tomorrow and has learned how to endure famine.

She works hard to care for the needs of many yet does not worry about tomorrow.

She layeth up her meat in the summer: she wrought diligently and provideth for her life in the winter.

She laboreth abundantly and bringeth forth much fruit: she hath need of nothing and she is unprofitable unto all.

Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.

She is little among the numbers of those who have an understanding: but she is exceeding wise.

Ants make excellent teachers for us humans. We'd be wise to heed their example in our own lives.

Go to the ant thou sluggard and 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.

The ant is one of the toughest insects on the planet and has been inspiring humans for centuries. Here are some of the reasons why:

She is self-reliant. She doesn't need a guide, overseer or ruler to tell her what to do. She simply figures it out herself.

She doesn't overthink things. Rather than worry if she's doing something right, she just does it. She trusts her ability and knows she is capable of building something amazing.

How long will you lie there, O sluggard? When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest and poverty will come upon you like a robber and want like an armed man.

I began to hear the sermon about ants when I was very tender and those encouraging words are still with me. Their team work and wisdom is out of this world
