It seems that many of us are having problems with ants in our homes. I don't know what it is about this last month, but we have noticed ants all over the place. You boil the kettle and realise that you have just killed 100's of the little guys or you go to get some sugar and they have managed to get into the container (so much for the 'sealed' container).

What really got me was when I noticed a half empty box of smarties in the fridge (mmmmh) and as I poured some into my hand there were ants on them! These are hard-core ants - they even survive in the fridge.

Here is what Solomon said we can learn from Ants:

"Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones.

Learn from their ways and become wise!

Though they have no prince

or governor or ruler to make them work,

they labour hard all summer,

gathering food for the winter."
- Proverbs 6:6-8

Next time you see the little 'critters' running all over your home, just think about what we can learn for them. Perhaps we have much to learn.

Living in Grace,

P.S. If you have an 'ant' story please let us know - should be good fun:)
