Learning from the ant

There is so much to learn in this life and if we reckon we can't learn from the smallest, weakest and youngest then we are standing on dangerous ground. It is not just those who have degrees, large bank balances and big followings that can teach us true wisdom. Listen to these wise words of instruction:

"You lazy fool, look at an ant.
    Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two.
Nobody has to tell it what to do.
    All summer it stores up food;
    at harvest it stockpiles provisions.
So how long are you going to laze around doing nothing?
    How long before you get out of bed?
A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there,
    sit back, take it easy—do you know what comes next?
Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life,
    poverty your permanent houseguest!" - Proverbs 6:6-11

What are we able to learn from the 'smallest' in our communities at the moment?
