“There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise: The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer; The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks; The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands; The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces.”
Today’s Morsel: Ants are called picnic pests because they are out gathering their food in the summer because they know that winter will come. The ant speaks to us of a people who understand preparation. They don’t wait for bad weather to come to look for work and food. They get it in the summer when the picnics and barbecue and parties are taking place. For them, summer is the best time to gather what they will need for winter. Solomon says that they are not a people that are strong, they are a people that are wise. What about you? Are you wise or foolish? You do not need to be strong to be wise, nor do you need to be weak to be foolish. Wisdom is known of her children. I want to be wise in the things and ways of God.
Sing: Life is good cause God is. Life is good cause I’m His. New life springing up growing in the sun, walking hand and hand, and having some fun. Life is so so good.
Thought For Today: Wisdom is always the principle thing.
