Ironically on Sunday, a dear friend gave me a wonderful scripture about the lesson we can learn from ants. Really, I thought, how can I possibly learn anything from something that annoys me so much. I guess you know where I'm going with this. There is a lesson to learn from ants about efficiency and productivity.
The ants didn't waste any time moving into action to retrieve whatever mess my boys left on the floor. Not only that, they called all of their "ant" friends to help them in this insurmountable task.
Are you a slacker? Do you like to procrastinate? Do you constantly have the attitude, "I'll just wait until tomorrow?"
Surprisingly, the life span of an ant is only 90 days. Those little, pesky insects only have 3 months to live. I guess that's why they spend their time wisely.
Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones. Learn from their ways and be wise! Even though they have no prince or governor or ruler to make them work they labor hard all summer gathering food for the winter. Proverbs 6:6-7 (NLT)
So this weekend don't be a lazybone. Consider Spring cleaning, completing your taxes or finishing that project for school that is due in a few weeks. You never know how long you have. Manage your time wisely and learn a valuable lesson from the ant. (Posted by Roslyn)
