Prodigal: You got to come over here quick and see what I found?
Me: What did you find?
Prodigal: I found a ton of ants and they are working so hard together just to carry this grass away from the ant hill.
Me: I was just reading some facts about ants.
Prodigal: What did you learn.
Dr. James P. Gills writes in his book Exceeding Gratitude for the Creator’s Plan
Were you aware that there are about twenty thousand different species of ants, or that they live almost anywhere on the planet in large colonies or groups? There are three types of ants in each species: the queen, the sterile female workers, and males. The male ants only serve one purpose–to mate with future queen ants: they do not live very long. Therefore, the only ant we could observe working above ground is the female ant. When the Bible instructs us to “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways,” (Prov.6:6), it is amazingly accurate.
The truth of God’s power and knowledge is all around us everyday we just have to open our eyes to it!
When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
