the small and wise

Taking a lesson from Wise King Solomon’s observations about hard work //  He must have know all of our excuses //

   Four things on earth are small,

yet they are extremely wise:

ants – creatures of little strength,

yet they store up their food in the summer;
marmots – vulnerable as they are,
manage to arrange for rock-solid homes;
locusts – leaderless insects,

yet they strip the field like an army regiment;
lizards – easy enough to catch,

but they sneak past vigilant palace guards

{Proverbs 30:25-28}

Wisdom by this definition is FOCUS and HARD WORK.
It’s allows goodness to carry on and fly under the radar of getting caught up in other things.

Do you ever have a hard time staying focused?

For the ants and marmots, they do not let their lack of strength hinder them.  They stay focused and get the job done. (yes, I googled “marmot”) Isn’t it cute?

For the locusts, they have no leader, and yet they ADVANCE TOGETHER….

For the lizard, they are sneaky and fly under the radar.

For the Fear of missing out——>we miss everything because of busyness.

Fear of the mundane——–>the search for pleasure and excitement is so strong.

What if God is just saying, “stay focused on loving those who are right in front of you today.”

We complicate everything-

  • raising a family
  • working a business
  • maintaining a home
  • maintaining our health
  • loving our neighbor
  • serving the poor
  • school
  • relationships

“I can do only small things. Small things with great love.”

-Mother Teresa

Just like our little wise friends (ants, marmots, locusts, and lizards)  may we stay focused and work hard.

Always unto Jesus.
