Consider the Ant

January 10, 2015

The ant is a remarkable creature–
The most laborious insects in existence. The most highly industrialized. They collect food in proper seasons. Fondly attached to their young. They have keen foresight for others. They work quietly without show. They work tirelessly until the work is done. They work together in astonishing systems of organization to the best good of the whole community. They are ingenious carpenters and masons, building their own system of homes and underground tunnels. They keep their homes scrupulously clean. Each has a specific job to help meet the needs of the community. They fight to death to protect their own homes and young from enemies. Their social life compares with that of human beings in many respects. They are intelligent and wise. They carry out life’s work without being forced to do so by a guide, overseer, or ruler.
In our lives we have people like the ant and we also have people like sluggards. That is true especially in ministry. SOS Events are blessed to have many people who are like the ant. Willing to do whatever it takes to see souls saved.
There are a few who say they want to work but when asked to do something they always find an excuse.
In the work of the Lord, which one are you?

Proverbs 6:6-7
Go to the ant, thou sluggard;
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.
