Proverbs 6:6-8… “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.”







Proverbs 6:6-11 turns King Solomon’s attention to the subject of laziness. The term translated here as “sluggard” or “slacker” implies something more than unmotivated behavior… it also includes irresponsibility and laziness. Such persons put themselves at higher risk of physical destruction. Even if they can get by in the present, a lack of preparation means that they will not survive a crisis. In direct contrast, King Solomon suggests the example of the ant… a creature who works diligently and is therefore able to endure those times of trouble and intense difficulty.

Ants are well-known to put forth a great deal of effort during the summer months. When food is readily available, they wisely invest time to gather it. They do this so that they have an adequate supply on hand during the colder winter season. Soldier ants gather enough food for not only themselves but also for the next generation. By doing this thing, they’re not only protecting themselves from difficult times… they’re also providing security for their offspring. Earlier in this passage, King Solomon urged lazy, irresponsible people to observe the ants as an excellent model of preparedness (a state of readiness). Proverbs 10:5 reinforces the significance of diligently working to prepare for the future. This verse states, “He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: BUT he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.”

Joseph is a shining example of someone who wholeheartedly believed in preparedness. In a dream, the Pharaoh of Egypt saw seven superior, well-nourished, attractive cows arise from the Nile that were followed by seven inferior, undernourished, unattractive cows. The seven scrawny cows ate the seven fatted cows. The Pharaoh of Egypt also saw seven full ears of grain grow on one stalk followed by seven empty, blighted ears that ate them. Joseph interpreted the dream to mean that Egypt’s agriculture would be enormously productive for seven years, but then seven years of famine would follow. He wisely advised Pharaoh to store one-fifth of the plentiful produce as a reserve for the seven years of famine. Pharaoh believed the Heavenly Father’s Spirit blessed Joseph with this incredible wisdom, he therefore appointed Joseph the second-in-command over all of Egypt (Genesis 41).
