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. How long will you slumber, O sluggard? When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler, And your need like an armed man. (Proverbs 6:6-11) There are four things which are little on the earth, But they are exceedingly wise: The ants are a people not strong, Yet they prepare their food in the summer; (Proverbs 30:24-25)
Ants on Tree after heavy rain
While reading in Proverbs the other day, I came again across the above verses. I remembered some pictures we had taken while birdwatching at South Lake Howard Nature Preserve. We had had an extreme amount of rain (not this year) and the ants were hugging a tree and many had sacrificed themself for the sake of getting the rest to safety. Below are some of the Creation Moments articles about the Ants. I trust you find them informative and inspirational.
