Animals in the Bible - The Ant

I love animals, all animals (okay, except for spiders. They give me the creeps). But even I don't normally think about an ant as being part of the Bible Story.

But it is! In fact God's told us that we should be more like... an ant. Really! 

In Proverbs 6:6,7 God says:

"Go to the ant, you sluggard (that is, a lazy person); consider its way and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest."

So the next time you see an ant think about how hard it works and... try to be more like it. 

(Oh yeah, and try not to step on it too!)
(Oh... and the image of the ant is courtesy of Wikipedia - I love Wikipedia!)
