Inspiration for the Day!

“Four things on earth are small, yet they are extremely wise:
Ants are creatures of little strength, yet they store up their food for the summer;
coneys are creatures of little power, yet they make their home in the crags;
locusts have no king, yet they advance together in ranks;
a lizard can be caught with the hand, yet it is found in kings’ palaces.”

Proverbs 30:24-28

So what does this mean? Just how are ants, coneys, locusts and lizards wise? We can actually learn a lot from these animals and insects. The ant demonstrates preparation. The coney (also called rock rabbit which is a rodent-like mammal with feet that have hoof-like toes) demonstrates wise building. Note: a crag is a steep rugged rock or peak. Locusts demonstrate cooperation and order. The lizard shows us fearlessness.

Go about your day today as the ant, coney, locust and lizard: Be prepared, reach for the heights, get along with others and don’t live in fear. May God’s blessings continue to rain upon you!
