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. (Proverbs 30:24-28)
Today’s Morsel: We can learn a lot from observing God’s creation. Even Solomon, the wisest man, seems to have spent time observing it. From the ant, he said we can learn about the importance of preparedness and preparation. By observing the ants, we can learn to prepare ourselves for the coming of the Lord. And then he says, “The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks.” From the rock badger, he says we can learn the importance of protection and ensuring our homes are protected from the elements. We can also learn the importance for the armor of God. Next he says, “The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands.” Here he shows us the power of working in unity and becoming one in Christ. And finally he says, “The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces.” Here he stresses the importance of persistence in reaching heaven, as no goal is reached without it. What have you learned from nature?
