Ants Bible

 Go to the ant, O sluggard;

    consider her ways, and be wise.

Without having any chief,

    officer, or ruler,

she prepares her bread in summer

    and gathers her food in harvest.

Proverbs 6:6-8

In these verses, we are told to consider the ways of ants. What important principles can we learn from these tiny little creatures? Here are three important behaviors of ants that will help children too.

I recently read a thesis project by Karl Alan Stelzer who is a potter and a minister. He gives incredible insight into the imagery of God as a potter. You can also listen to a sermon he gives on this topic here.

Ant Facts #1

Ants are not lazy and work without being told.

Ants are not lazy they do not have a leader and work without being told
Ants do not have a leader.

Likewise, ants do not have a leader that tells them to keep working. Therefore, they know to do their best and keep going. Ants stay busy while other ants sleep so the work can continue. Therefore, we can assume that anty never complain.

Do everything without complaining and arguing

Phillipians 2:14

Ant Facts #2

Ants prepare and never quit.

ants are prepared they never give up
Ants prepare for the winter in the summer.

In addition, ants gather food for the winter in the summer. Consequently, they plan ahead. Even though they find the shortest path, they quickly form a new one if something interferes with the route. They never let negative circumstances stop them. They keep going and mark their path so other ants will know the way.The following five steps will illustrate reasons that we can think of God as a potter.

Ant Facts #3

Ants work together

Ant facts they work together and share everything
Ants create bridges for each other and work together to carry heavy items.

A colony of ants will work as a team. Subsequently, they carry heavy loads together. Above all, they have no concept of yours or mine. Just as Acts 4:32 explains that the early church shared their possesions, the ants share everything.

In conclusion, we should be like the ants.

  • Work hard and not complain even when our teacher is not watching. We won’t let others stop us from working.
  • Be prepared with our supplies every day and when things go wrong, we will not stop. We will find a new way to do our work.
  • Work together as a team. We will listen to each other and use everyone’s ideas. We know that together we can carry and do more than we can each do alone.
