“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.”
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!
