Tale of the Tiny Ant A Thousand Elsewhere

Tale of the Tiny Ant

This translation of today’s reading hit me so hard as I was reading this, speaking right to my soul.

My default lifestyle is living to the extremes—extreme laziness or extreme exhaustion. I have spent a lifetime trying to find the balance of the middle ground.

Neither extremes are right in the eyes of the Lord.

Because God can teach us with His creation, He calls us to stoop down and watch the ant.

The ant doesn’t have an alarm clock in the morning to remind it to get up and go to work. The ant just DOES.

The ant doesn’t have a calendar telling it winter is coming, better stock up on food. The ant just DOES.

The ant doesn’t wait for the government to tell it what to do. The ant just DOES.

What a practical lesson from this tale of the tiny ant. --- When you’re feeling lazy, come and learn a lesson from this tale of the tiny ant. Yes, all you lazybones, come learn from the example of the ant and enter into wisdom. The ants have no chief, no boss, no manager—no one has to tell them what to do. You’ll see them working and toiling all summer long, stockpiling their food in preparation for winter. So wake up, sleepyhead. How long will you lie there? When will you wake up and get out of bed? If you keep nodding off and thinking, “I’ll do it later,” or say to yourself, “I’ll just sit back awhile and take it easy,” just watch how the future unfolds! By making excuses you’ll learn what it means to go without. Poverty will pounce on you like a bandit and move in as your roommate for life. Proverbs‬ ‭6:6-11‬ ‭| TPT‬‬
