▪︎ Myrmecology is the scientific study of ants.
▪︎The one who studies ant’s life is myrmecologist.
▪︎ King Solomon was a scientist, a myrmecologist, who studied ants.
▪︎ He advised his son to learn wisdom from the ants …..
▪︎….in the areas of excellent strategic planning, focusing, organizational skills, division of labour and hard work.
▪︎ Solomon was sensitive to matters of life, a great thinker, student of nature and intelligent observer.
▪︎ When Christians are insensitive, dull and careless, it means they don’t read neither do they observe and study anything well.
▪︎ When Churches are:
— and ostrich-like………
▪︎ they don’t care and they are not worried……
▪︎ Solomon says a lazy Church must go to Pastor Ant and the Ant Church to learn……
▪︎ Go to the ant, you sluggard, observe its ways and be wise ( Pro.6:6)
▪︎ Wisdom is not sold and, so no one can buy it from the market.
▪︎ Go to God’s Professors of wisdom, the ANTS
▪︎ Ants are very small creatures, but with their huge wisdom they can awe you to the max.
SOME EXCELLENT QUALITIES OF THE ANT, A LESSON TO TH CHURCH.
▪︎ Ants sleep one minute at a time and wake up to work.– Amaaaaaazing!!!!!!
▪︎ That’s ants take 250 naps ( ie short sleep) to rest in a day. Each nap or sleep takes one minute.
The ant then wakes up to work.
▪︎ You sleep too much before God.
▪︎ That is why you are poor. Not wise enough to make enough money and do great things for your family and Church.
▪︎ In total, every ant sleeps for 4 hours 48 minutes in a day and the remaining time is for work.
▪︎ Ants care for only two important things in life—- food and water.
▪︎ Ants are not as greedy as humans.
▪︎ But if we have food and clothing, let’s be content with that ( 1Tim 6:8)
▪︎ Ants do not have ears to listen to “nonsense” from the world.
▪︎ Yet they communicate among themselves.
▪︎ You may learn from the ants by blocking your ears from what you hear.
▪︎ That’s why ants are so focused and successful as a wise community
▪︎ In the ant colony no one is idle, everyone has something to do
▪︎ In the ant colony, big- headed ants are soldiers. Their mandibles ( teeth) are big for battle
▪︎… and small headed ants are workers and theirmandibles are small for work.
▪︎ In the Christian faith nobody must stay idle inChurch.
▪︎ No ant is lazy, idle walker.
▪︎ Everybody must work, particularly, as a soul winner and a trainer of those you win to also become soldiers to win others.
▪︎ Start today. Pick a new convert and take it upon yourself to develop them
▪︎ Note still: In Christianity, we have the big- headed anointing men and women to crush
Satan and save souls.
Christians have a lot to learn from this wise community where planning is never taken for granted. Where there is absolute orderliness and the kingdom is peaceful and joyful.
