You lazy fools, 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!  (The Message Bible)

Proverbs 6:6

Have you ever noticed how quickly ants rebuild when their anthill is destroyed?  You may have been knocked down but you are not knocked out.  There’s a lot to learn in life from the ant.  Ants don’t give up.  They keep pushing through.  It’s about being diligent.  “Patience and diligence, like faith, removes mountains.”  William Penn

DECLARATION:  What’s your mountain, your situation that you need to overcome?

 Make that choice now to be more diligent.
