Proverbs 6:6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:
7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,
8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.
So if we are to be wise tonight; let’s look at some interesting facts about ants:
- Ants can lift to 20 times their body weight.
- Comparison to their size ants run faster than a racehorse.
- The ant is an accomplished farmer, planting mushrooms and plants. The ant also brings in fertilizer to help the plants grow.
- Black ant super colonies have been known to reach up to 1,300 miles wide.
- Ant are very intelligent. They have 250,000 brain cells compared to the 100,000 in humans.
Some things I have noted about ants are:
- The ant works out of necessity… seeing the task as their very survival.
- The ant is not jealous or vain.. It simply looks to get the task at had done.
- The ant doesn’t give up easily.
- The ant works well with a team or group.
- The ant Shares his information
John 1:43 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
Acts 8:29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.
30 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?
31 And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.
Romans 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
It’s been said that sharing the gospel was just one hungry man, telling another hungry man where he found food.
