Looking for an Ants Bible lesson? Did you know ants can help us learn about God? They can also help us understand how God can grow the fruit of His spirit through us. If you are familiar with Little Pot’s fruit-bearing steps, you know that God uses our physical, spiritual, social, and academic growth to produce His fruit.
Little Pot and a few little ants are here to teach us important lessons from the Bible. Much of what they are about to share can be found in our Little Miss Muffet Learns About Spiders book and our Teach About Spiders and Insects with Little Miss Muffet Teacher’s Guide. Both are available as a bundle. Within the Learn and Teach About Insects and Spiders Bundle there are lesson plans, worksheets, and activities for each. Together they make for an awesome ants bible lesson.
Ants Bible Lesson – Spiritual Growth
The potter plants a seed in Little Pot’s humus soil. That is to say, the seed represents God’s Word and the humus represents our humility. Therefore, we plant Proverbs 6:6-8 and Proverbs 30:25 in our humble hearts.
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
To clarify these verses, we are told to consider the ways of ants. For instance, ants are not lazy. They prepare and never give up. They also work together. These three characteristics make a great Bible lesson about ants. Furthermore, you can read these three important behaviors here.
Social Growth through the Ants Bible Lesson
In addition, the plant inside Little Pot will grow a stem and leaves. The stem represents our integrity because it is straight and upright. Likewise, a man of integrity is straight and upright too (proverbs 11:3). The leaves represent healthy relationships. Photosynthesis is when a leaf nourishes a plant with light. Likewise, our relationships should nourish us with the light of Christ.
To be a person of integrity and develop healthy relationships, we must grow socially. Above all, applying the Bible verses about ants will help.
After Little Pot grows a stem and leaves, a flower blooms. The flower represents new knowledge blooming. The more we study ants, the more we can learn from these little creatures. I imagine that Solomon probably studied ants. He was known for being very wise. The Bible tells us that God gave him wisdom. Consequently, the book of Proverbs contains wise information. In addition, here are a few books and a video to help you learn more about ants.
