The Harvesting Ant
“Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide,overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.”
God cares about all of the creatures He has made – even ants. God has invented such incredible ways to provide for them that Bible skeptics often get caught in their own traps!
Those who don’t believe the Bible is the Word of God have in the past pointed out an error, as they call it, in Proverbs 6:8. Proverbs 6:6-8 talks about the wisdom of the ant in gathering and storing food for the winter. Skeptics said this must come from some ancient myths about ants because there are no ants known to gather and store food. In the last few years, however, their laughter has stopped. We now know of three different species of ants that gather and store food. And guess what? Two of these species are native to Israel!
Evolutionists tell us that they are sure the first real human beings weren’t even smart enough to gather and store grain and seeds. It is obvious that ants who gather and store grain and seeds are totally unexpected by evolution. But we know that we have a Creator who provides for all the needs of all His creatures – even ants.
The Bible shows itself to be true in all earthly things it tells us about. This is God’s way of impressing upon us the accuracy of His Word so that we might believe when it tells us about spiritual things like our Savior, Jesus Christ.
