A visit to the Ants-9
Proverbs 6:6 “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:”
Proverbs 6:6 “Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones. Learn from their ways and become wise!” (NLT)
Another wonderful lesson I want us to learn from the ant is what I call “Thinking big”. Every time I look at the ants I see some tiny insects that look seemingly irrelevant but when I see the colonies they build I cannot but marvel at their level of success.
I am sure that’s one reason Solomon asked us to go learn from them. If you look at their size compared to the constructed building or colonies you will agree with me that it takes a lot of guts and big picture thinking to achieve that.
As a man, one of the things that easily discourage us is the enormity of the project or task at hand. Once what we want to achieve looks very gigantic we easily get frustrated and discouraged but not the ant. The ant simply plans and get to work and will not stop until it is through.
Isaiah 54:2 “Clear lots of ground for your tents! Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big!…” (MSG)
In this kingdom, we don’t have space for mediocre and non-big-picture thinkers. God commands us to make large tents, spread out and think big. God Himself thinks big thoughts or how else do you explain what he did with Adam!
He created just one man and one woman and he told them to multiply and replenish the earth, and barely six thousand years later, we have over seven billion people. Despite the population increase, we have not exhausted the land, the airspace, the water and other resources.
The planet itself has not become too heavy to contain us or break into pieces. It must have taken such a big picture thinker as God, to clear lots of ground and make a large tent called earth.
His son Jesus Christ also came with the same mandate and said:
