Learn from the ant

Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

Proverbs 6:6

So what can we learn from the ant?

The ant is a very hard working, wise species. They know they need to store enough food for the winter. Even at the risk of us coming along and stepping on them!
Ants work hard to build and defend their nest. The worker ants begin their jobs almost immediately; to enlarge their nest, gather food and care for the other eggs. If an ant does this by instinct, how much more should we who have brains and souls prepare for the future? Yet the animals seem to have a much better handle on saving than most humans.

God's word says that the foolish servant spent everything he had, and that the wise servant went out and multiplied what he had been given. The servant was even considered foolish who "hid" what had been entrusted to him, because he did not have an increase.
