Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Proverbs 6:6 (KJV)
Truly the wisdom of God is unsearchable; He has created many things for our learning. The opening scripture throws light on one of those things which God has created to teach mankind knowledge. To the sluggard or lazy person God created the ant to teach them knowledge so that by putting to practice that knowledge they can acquire wisdom for living. The ant does not have a leader but gathers food in the harvest so that she can provide herself food in the summer. If an insect can live with this wisdom then a human being should do better. However, this is not always the case; that is why God tells the lazy to go to the ant and discern the principle behind hardwork and wealth creation. The ant is industrious and saves what she has gathered against a rainy day. The Christian should also learn from the ant; he/she should be diligent with work, save from his/her earnings against a rainy day. Say no to sluggishness for laziness leads to poverty.
