There once was a lady that had a carved out watermelon… I was that lady!
Let me show you what happened to the shell of a watermelon I put out on my lawn thinking that maybe the birds would like to have a try.
Something other than the birds discovered my watermelon.
Do you see how busy the little ants have been?
No wonder we read in Proverbs 30:24-25
Four things on earth are small,
yet they are extremely wise:
Ants are creatures of little strength,
yet they store up their food in the summer…
They just leave an empty shell!
Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers
its food at harvest.
How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep?
A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest —
and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man.
I saw them, in my own back yard, the busy little ants.
We can learn a lot from them.
