Are we doing all we can when it comes to storing things up, just in case? The "in case" is a scenario that can hit us hard if we're not ready. I know that all too well and I am currently in the storing and reaping phase in my life concerning some areas. In fact, are we ever out of that season? Sometime ago I wrote a blog post about the diligent ant. This is some of what I wrote concerning storing and reaping:
Just about everyone knows the story of the ant. The hardworking insects who put all their effort together to build and are then able to take pride and comfort in the fruits of their labor. The smart little critters who put the lazy to shame by using their industrious, hard-working acumen to make things happen. We have to give those ants credit where credit is due. The ant pretty much epitomizes Proverbs 10:4/5, because they gather in the summer and they are able to sleep well in the winter. What a tidy little case-study in using one's intellect and wisdom to go from A to B to Z. Just goes to show that God will use anything to get our attention. The ant, if we would study to show ourselves approved, can teach us alot. Proverbs 20:4 says, "sluggards [the lazy] do not plow in season; so at harvest time they look but find nothing." Study the ant.
