Valuable Lessons from Ants

“Teamwork makes the dream Work.” — John C. Maxwell

“Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise. They have no guide, no overseer, or ruler providing them with meat in the summer so they must gather food in the harvest. How long with thou sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep.” (Proverb 6:6-11)

Many years ago, we had a washer and dryer delivered when our son was either nine or ten years old. As he sat on the sofa observing two delivery men, he noticed only one was in and out of the house working. So, when the second man walked in with paperwork for me to sign, our son looked at him and started singing “What will it take, TEAMWORK!”

He was absolutely right! Teamwork is how things get done effectively, efficiently and timely. What is so significant about our son observing and singing? He has Autism but understood many hands make light work.

Ants are always moving being productive. We can learn from the ants’ trend to always be busy working for the Lord. “I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh when no man can work. As long as I Am in the world, I Am the light of the world.” (John 9:4-5)

There is much work for us to do in strengthening one another to work effectively and efficiently in reaching out to those with lost souls. Believers, are we slumbering when it comes to sharing the Word of God?

Do we have all hands-on deck in our spiritual commitment and genuine love for one another, or just scrolling through life? As we go through our God given day, consider ways of ants.
