Little but wise
Little is used in a diminutive form to describe the smallness of the ant in an affectionate way, like little children who are so loveable. Why these small loveable ants are considered wise? The scripture answers in Pro 30:25 that it is because “they prepare their meat in the summer.”
In biblical Israel only two seasons, summer and winter existed. In summer, the ants are busy with the task of collecting and eating large amounts of food. The reason being in winter their body temperature drops with the cold season and they go into hibernation in a warm places without food. Their summer initiative helps them to survive through the cruel and merciless winters. Below are the lives’ lessons that we can learn from the ants.
