English Standard Version (ESV)
6 Go to the ant, O sluggard;
consider her ways, and be wise.
7 Without having any chief,
officer, or ruler,
8 she prepares her bread in summer
and gathers her food in harvest.
New International Version (NIV)
13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
My husband has been using my computer tonight to prepare for a Bible study in the morning. Since it's actually after midnight now that I'm writing; of course, I'm thinking of the industrious ant even as I plan on sleeping in this morning. As it is, with Rheumatoid Arthritis, I often wake in the morning with my first thought being plans for a nap. If you're like me and you're still up, I'll say now, "Go to bed!" so that one day we can rise up like the mighty ant.
