An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

(Proverbs 6:8 KJV)  Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

The “her” of this verse is referring to the ant.  The actions being described are done without any supervision or orders being given.  The ant “prepares” (3559) and “gathers” (103). 

There are certain things in life that we do not need to be told to do, or at least we should not need to be told.  They used to be assumed.  The modern culture that expands government dependency and a sense of helplessness is working to destroy these actions.  We have so many more counselors, social workers, gurus and self help books today that it makes you wonder how our ancestors made it through the centuries of human existence. 

Maybe it is because there is a built in awareness that we need to do basic things like get up, dress and eat to start our day.  It also doesn’t take much imagination to realize that we need to do something to prepare for tomorrow.

So?  God has many wonderful and glorious things to share with each of us.  While we are waiting, do the basics.  We have enough mundane we know to do that we can keep busy until the awesome arrives.
