The Ant and the Feather

"One morning, I wasted nearly an hour watching a tiny
ant carry a huge feather across my back terrace.
Several times it was confronted by obstacles in its
path and after a momentary pause it would make the
necessary detour.

"At one point the ant had to negotiate a crack in the
concrete about 10mm wide. After brief contemplation
the ant laid the feather over the crack, walked
across it and picked up the feather on the other side
then continued on its way.

"I was fascinated by the ingenuity of this ant—one of
God's smallest creatures. Here was a minute insect,
lacking in size yet equipped with a brain to reason,
explore, discover and overcome."

Can you imagine God telling us to learn from an ant?
So what can we learn? Ants are determined, they are
not afraid to work to achieve their goals, they work
as a team, they think through and work to overcome
the challenges thrown in their pathway, and they
never give up. But most of all they teach us about
the marvels of God's creation.
